Bengaluru molestation on the New Year Eve Celebration

In midnight, men in the crowd (~ one lakh+) simply went nuts. Bengaluru’s depraved men started pawing and groping at any girl they could get their hands on. Women ran for their lives.

Since 90s every year incidents of girls being molested have occurred almost every year with unfailing regularity the perpetrators have never been caught. This time in 2017 its a MASS MOLESTATION, there is every indication that the perverts will get away with it.

Rohingya Masacare

The photograph of a baby, belonging to the Rohingya Muslim community of Myanmar, shared on social media recently, is one of them. Its just enough to explain the ground reality.

I am HAPPY he is dead, instead of suffering every day and finding no place to go in this big world.

To God we blong, and to him is our return

Ill treatment and harassment of BSF and CRPF, Army soldries

Army jawan tortured for wiriting complaint to PMO

Lance Naik Yagya Pratap Singh, posted in 42 Infantry Brigade in Dehradun, said that after he wrote to the prime minister, the defence minister, the president and the Supreme Court in June last year, his brigade received a communication from PMO asking for a probe into his grievances.

He said when the Prime Minister’s Office wrote back to the Brigade asking it to investigate the matter, “the Brigadier put pressure on me and tortured me to such a level that I could have taken an extreme step. But I will not commit suicide or act in any way or against anyone that will tarnish the name of my service,” he said.

The video has come to light as two similar clips have been trending on social media.

  • In one of the videos, a CRPF constable demanded parity in pay and other benefits between the army and the paramilitary forces, citing the difficult assignments they had to undertake.
  • In the other video, a BSF constable Tej Bahadur Yadav has complained about poor quality food served to them in icy weather condition on the border in Jammu and Kashmir.

No amount of lipstick can make pig look better. No amount of fake patriotism can hide the fact that our armed forces, BSF and CRPF are as rotten as the rest of the society!

Here is the highlight

PM Modi Replaces Mahatma Gandhi On Khadi Calendar

PM Modi triggered a flurry of reactions after reports emerged that his photograph had replaced an iconic shot of Mahatma Gandhi with his spinning wheel, on the new Khadi Udyog merchandise.

The PM’s photograph – which was published on the cover pages of the Khadi Village Industries Commission’s (KVIC) 2017 calendar and diary – shows Modi weaving khadi on a large ‘charkha’, in the same classic pose as Gandhi.

The decision, however, did not sit well with everyone.

 Modi obsessed with foreign cloths

History Judgment by HC - “PROVOKED IN THE NAME OF RELIGION AND THEY COMMITTED MURDER.”

Mohsin Shaikh was allegedly targeted over a Facebook post on Shivaji and Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray.

On June 2, 28-year-old Mohsin Shaikh was on his way to dinner with a friend when they were dragged off their motorbike by a group of men (members of Hindu Rashtra Sena) armed with hockey sticks, bats and stones. Mohsin was brutally beaten and was left bleeding and unconscious on the road; his friend escaped.

Three of the 21 arrested (Vijay Rajendra Gambhire, Ranjeet Shankar Yadav and Ajay Dilip Lalge) - were granted bail on 12-Jan-2016 by the Bombay High Court, which says they were “PROVOKED IN THE NAME OF RELIGION AND THEY COMMITTED MURDER.”

HC judge Mridula Bhatkar said in her order

“The fault of the deceased was only that he belonged to another religion. I consider this factor in favour of the accused. Moreover, the accused do not have any criminal record and it appears that in the name of the religion, they were provoked and have committed the murder”.

  • The BJP’s State president Tamilisai Soundararajan takes U Turn: Earlier on January 14, she said the Tamil Nadu BJP is committed to conducting jallikattu across the State. But today 18th Jan She appeals to students to give up the protests. – dirty politics

The protesters demanded is one

that the chief minister issue a statement to clarify the state’s position on the Jallikattu issue and added that the protest will not cease until such a time.

It looks like Tamil Nadu version of the Arab Spring, or it may even remind you of the anti-Hindi agitation in the state in the 1960s. It is happening students and youngsters are on the roads and public places demanding the conduct of jallikattu, the traditional bull-taming sport in the state.

This year Pongal2017 was diffrent for diffrent location, some placess where peoples were not allowed to conduct Jallikattu, some where small violence and lathi charge.

The accused (Shoaib Kohli) was driving BMW at a speed of 100-125 kph while the WagonR was barely moving at 40-50 kph. That stretch of the road is not such that you can drive at a high speed

WagonR driver, Nazrul Islam (32), was found dead after the crash near Munirka flyover around 11.30pm on Sunday. Even as the locals gathered to revive Islam, Kohli managed to flee from the spot in an auto-rickshaw, leaving behind his mangled car.

Colonel Nizamuddin, Netaji’s trusted friend, dies at 117

Not many have heard about Colonel Nizamuddin, one of the many foot-soldiers from Indian freedom struggle, who died as an unsung hero on Monday morning. On Tuesday, media reports say Nizamuddin died at the age of 117 in Azamgarh district of Uttar Pradesh.

Born in 1901, Nizamuddin is survived by his wife Ajbul Nisha, three sons and two daughters. His youngest son Sheikh Akram was by his side when the end came in the early hours today. Nizamuddin, who had served in the Indian National Army from 1943-45. Nizamuddin fought for the country’s freedom in Singapore and Burma (now Myanmar) as a soldier in Netaji’s Indian National Army (INA).

He was the trusted driver and bodyguard of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. Nizamuddin was the same man who took three bullets to save Netaji in the forests of Burma, according to a report published by The Telegraph.

He accompanied Bose during his meeting with Hitler to seek help to secure freedom for India. He also accompanied Bose during his trips to Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.

Nizamuddin never accepted the theory of Netaji’s death in the Taihoku air crash in 1945. He claimed he had dropped Netaji on the banks of Sitangpur river near Burma-Thailand border after the reported crash. After that, he returned to Rangoon, and settled there after marrying Habibunnisa. He has four sons and three daughters. He worked as a tourist guide in Burma before returning to Azamgarh in 1969.

O Panneerselvam vs Sasikala

At 9PM, 8th FebA: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam made his way to Jayalalithaa’s memorial at Marina Beach and sat in silence. That marked the beginning of his unexpected protest.

After sitting in meditation for more than 40 minutes, OPS told waiting journalists that he was practically usurped from his chief ministerial position. He insisted he was Jayalalithaa’s choice for the chief ministerial position and that Sasikala and her supporters threatened and forced him to resign from the CM post.

“I will withdraw my resignation, if people wish… I would fight to save the party and the goodwill of Jayalalithaa’s legacy,” he said.

The scenario is very similar to the winter of 1987-88 following the death of MGR, similar war errupted between Janaki Ramachandran, widow of the late MGR, and Jayalalithaa. We have to wait and watch.

Indian Navy says NO to Indian War Planes

Since 1983, a program to develope the warplane that will backbone of the air force due for induction in 1994, but still India struggles.

Manufacturing state-of-the-art warplanes could still be decades away as India need more time to master the technology.

In December, the navy chief, Admiral Sunil Lanba, said the sea version of the plane was “not up to the mark” and it could not take off from an aircraft carrier once weapons were loaded.

Failed native plane prompted the navy to issue a request last month for information for a foreign fighter to fill the gap, the first stage in a long procurement process.

Like India, South Korea, Taiwan and other Asian countires are intensifing efforts this year to develop indigenous warplanes, Lets wait and see who will and who will not

“She is a martyr’s daughter. His soul must be weeping that his daughter is being misguided by those who celebrate on the bodies of martyrs,” - BJP Union Minister of State Kiren Rijiju

[Withdraws campaign]

“I’m withdrawing from the campaign. Congratulations everyone. I request to be left alone. I said what I had to say.I have been through a lot and this is all my 20 year self could take :)” - Gurmehar Kaur in tweet

[Teachers and Staffs support Gurmehar Kaur]: The English Department of Lady Shri Ram College has unanimously issued the following statement.

We, the faculty members of the English Department, Lady Shri Ram College unequivocally and strongly support our student Gurmehar Kaur and her right to express her opinion on issues that embroil our university. It is immensely gratifying to us as her teachers that she has responded sensitively, creatively and bravely to events in her immediate context rather than seek the safe refuge of silence. We feel that it is the bounden duty of educational institutions to nurture sensitive, responsive and critical thinking students without the fear of violent retaliation. We are proud that Gurmehar has fulfilled her duty as a young citizen of this country. The threats of violence and brutality that she faces are absolutely reprehensible. Responses on social media by public figures such as Virender Sehwag and Randeep Hooda are shameful trivialization of the intimidation that Gurmehar faces at the hands of violent mobs whose viciousness the university has recently witnessed. We fervently appeal to the good sense of the public and to institutions of redressal to help restore our faith in law and justice in our country and let our young citizens think and articulate without fear of intimidation. - Rita Joshi, Madhu Grover, Rukshana Shroff, ArtiMinocha, Maya Joshi, ShernazCama, Mitali Mishra, Arunima Ray, DiptiNath, Maitreyee Mandal, JanetLalawmpuii, Ngangom Maheshkanta Singh, Karuna Rajeev, Wafa Hamid, Jonathan Varghese, TaniyaSachdeva, Rachita Mittal.

Tamil Nadu trade bodies to bycott Pepsi, Coca-Cola

Tamil Nadu Traders Federation (TNTF) and Consortium of Tamil Nadu Traders Association (CTNTA) have urged the traders in the state to shun Coca-Cola and Pepsi, and promote regional brands, Kali Mark, Bovonto and Torino, from 1 March. This move is partly inspired by the jallikkattu protests, which have also been viewed as assertion of the state’s cultural freedom.

Good Job! but on 2nd March The Madras High Court lifted a ban on Coca Cola and Pepsi from using River Tamirparani’s water in Tamil Nadu. The cola giants were stopped from using the river water after protests, four months ago. The argument against the companies were that thousands of farmers are suffering because the river water is being used for commercial gain. The companies, however, said that the water used in manufacturing cola was the surplus.

Hard work is more powerful than Harvard - says Prime Minister Narendra Modi

At an election rally in Maharajganj, Uttar Pradesh, on Wednesday, in an apparent dig at economists who have criticised the government’s demonetisation move.

On the one hand are those (critics of note ban) who talk of what people at Harvard say and on the other hand is a poor man’s son who through his hard work is trying to improve the economy - Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Modi’s brings recent GDP figures released by the Central Statistics Office as a proof. Indian economy grew by 7.0% in the December quarter, indicating that the impact of demonetisation was negligible on economic growth.

This clearly shows PM does not know what is GDP, some one needs to explain him what is GDP.

But Pronab Sen, the former Secretary of the Statistics Ministry, points out,

the GDP data is collected at the factory level but did not capture the inventories lying idle at automobile showrooms, departmental stores and other retail outlets. the GDP figures for the January-March quarter will probably reflect the disruption caused by demonetisation more accurately you can only push out so much inventory but if it is piling up in retail stores and not being sold, the factories won’t be able to send out manufactured products. - Pronab Sen told News18,

the real output will come in the up comming quarters

No Aadhaar No Food

The Union Human Resources Development (HRD) ministry has made it mandatory for all students availing free meals under the mid-day meal scheme to provide proof of Aadhaar cards, or apply for one before June 30. Apart from students, cooks-cum-helpers working at mid-day meal centres as well, need to compulsorily have unique identification. The ministry’s move is in line with the central government’s mandate to link Aadhaar with subsidy schemes.

This is shameful India will deny children food because they don’t have an Aadhaar number. India has the highest number of malnourished children in the world. You would imagine people in the government would be having sleepless nights thinking of ways to improve the nutrition and health of children.

“We understand that the B.J.P. and the R.S.S. are tied together somehow, so it seems to us that we also need to be talking to the R.S.S. Wow, am I negotiating with the government or am I negotiating with an ideological movement that is fueling the government? ” - Compassion International President and CEO Santiago Jimmy Mellado.

“Dear anti-nationals, let me tell you, one day this nation’s leader is going to sell all. Just for a selfie and for a standing ovation from the outsiders. Hundreds and hundreds of Appa Raos are going to kill thousands of Rohiths and they are going to say, ‘He/She was a gifted student’. All the intellectuals from the marginalised communities will get arrested just for mocking fictional characters….At the same time, all the leading national institutes will be headed by people who cannot even clear the 10th standard exam. These people claim dissenters are anti-nationals and seditious…They are going to kill many Rohiths, like us, just for eating beef, for being rational, for being intellectually productive for the country. But we are the real sons of this land and after we are all killed, there will be no nation.’’

Punjab Farmer Became The Owner Of An Entire Train And A Station Cabin

Here is the flashback: In 2007, Singh’s land was acquired by the northern railways for the Ludhiana-Chandigarh railway line. As per the norm, he was entitled to a monetary compensation of ₹1.47 crore. However, the railways paid him only ₹42 lakhs. The court asked the railways to pay the rest in Jan 2015, but they didn’t comply.

Since the Railways delayed the compensation, the court handed over the Swarna Shatabdi Express to Singh. The train runs between New Delhi and Amritsar every day.

This is a historic case, only will happen in movie.

Dhoni Aadhar details on social media.

Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s Aadhaar details were made public by a Twitter handle of the Central Services Centre. The leak has raised the issue of privacy of individuals and security of data collected by the government for Aadhaar. The government has been on an overdrive to implement Aadhaar and link it to both welfare and non-welfare schemes in the country. But, it is a serious concern when personal information of an individual is not kept secure and leaked out in the public domain. Despite implementing advanced technological safeguards, a thing as simple as human error breached the security of Aadhaar. Perhaps the focus should be on ensuring complete safety to Aadhaar data, at the collection points as well as storage repositories, instead of showing urgency to impose it on citizens.

Furthermore, there are security loopholes which are continuously being flagged but instead of paying heed to them and resolving the issues, the government seems to be in denial. In recent reports, it was seen how people were able to gain more than one Aadhaar enrollment IDs. Social media is littered with posts, some claiming to be evidence, of more extensive security vulnerabilities or compromise of Aadhaar.

Begging is a crime in 20 Indian states and 2 union territories.

You’re under arrest for ‘looking poor’: Indians in 20 states, 2 union territories can be arrested for begging

I didn’t know that, Many state laws treat begging within the jurisdiction of court and as a non-bailable offense. Most state laws allow the police to arrest anyone they think is a beggar without a warrant, Hindustan Times reported.

Except in the state of Tamil Nadu and Assam, most of the state laws take into account the fact that not having means to sustain a livelihood or if the person is wandering, he’s a beggar.

Laws in India legitimately grant the police the authority to arrest beggars, that too without a warrant.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s Press Conference Highlights

Here are the live updates of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s press conference:

  • The law says you can’t move the EVMs 45 days after polls.
  • What was the compulsion of the EC to blatantly break the law and move the Kanpur machine to Bhind?
  • That means there can be other machines that also took votes just for the BJP.
  • Earlier when EVMs were tampered, you could see if your vote went to other party, thanks to the light.
  • Now they have tweaked the software so much that the light is correct but the vote goes to the wrong party.
  • It also appears that not all machines but some machines were tampered and they were placed critically.
  • The EC says the software of EMVs are not over-writable. We want these machines handed to us and we will get it tested by our own experts.
  • This is a matter of the entire country’s faith. It raises serious questions on the EC’s integrity.
  • All elections are under threat. People will lose their faith in the voting system.
  • Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia: The EC needs to investigate why the machine that came from UP, voted for BJP no matter which button you pressed. Questions have been raised on the EC’s intent. Look at how that officer bullied reporters, threatening them with locking them up in the jail. Advanced countries all over the world have rejected EVMs. Why? This is not a malfunction. This is an intentional bug that has been added to the machine.
  • Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal: We are challenging the EC. EC says software cannot be overwritten. We challenge them: Under camera, in presence of your officers, give us the machines for 72 hours - we will show you how the software can be overwritten.
  • Its not about our josh. It is about the faith of the people. People are asking me why should we vote if our votes aren’t counted. There is no other way than going back to paper ballots. Democracy is under threat.

Man Killed By Alleged Cow Vigilantes

Beef Politics Returns: In a video that is being widely circulated, a mob of self-styled cow vigilantes assaults five men who were transporting cows in Rajasthan’s Alwar. One man is seen slumped on the road, unconscious. Pehlu Khan(55), died in hospital yesterday, two days after the brutal beating, and his four companions are in hospital.

Khan was planning to buy a milch buffalo when he set out from Mewat to Jaipur last Friday. As a dairy farmer, he wanted to increase the production of milk during Ramadan. But on Saturday, Khan bought a milch cow instead, as the seller extracted 12 litres of milk in front of him, and offered to sell the cow for a reasonable price.

Uncle SAM returns, Just days after the chemical attack on civilians the attack by US. Now I am convinceed that 99% US has hand in the chemical attack killed 70 just one day before. It was the first direct American assault on the Syrian government and Donald Trump’s most dramatic military order since becoming President.

Tej Bahadur Yadav a BSF soldier of the 29 battalion Seema Suraksha Bal, was seen exposing the rot in the system by revealing the deeply ingrained corruption in the higher order, saying that the troops are not even getting basic three square meals. He had earlier uploaded a video about quality of food in BSF which had gone viral on social media and sparked a nationwide outrage.

I have given proof of the food but I did not get justice. I will go to the court. I am confident of getting justice. I will fight for the soldiers till my last breath.

Farmers from Tamil Nadu calling off their protest at Jantar Mantar

Gandhigiri doesn’t work in India anymore.

For 41 days, TN farmers tried all ways of peacefully protest like drink their own urine, ran naked in front of the prime minister’s residence, carried the skulls of their loved ones who had died or committed suicide since October last year, ate food served on the road, clutched live rats and dead snakes in their mouth. But except attracting media attention, and even that was more because of the macabre optics of their protest, their non-violent approach did not achieve anything.

It may sound an extreme reaction to those living north of the Vindhyas, but New Delhi has pushed Tamil Nadu, and to an extent south India, a bit further away with the

Farmers wanted to feel the “mann”, but they returned to Chennai heartbroken that they did not get to hear any “mann ki baat”.

Why were the farmers agitating in Delhi and not in Chennai?

Simply because their protests in different districts of Tamil Nadu over the past many months had yielded zilch. Did anyone outside Tamil Nadu even know about them clutching live rats? They wanted a loan waiver from nationalised banks, wanted the Centre to give a significant drought relief package to Tamil Nadu and a Cauvery Management Board that would give them a decent share of the river water even in a bad year.

All the most importat is, in TN state we don’t know who is CM, there is lockdown with the ruling AIADMK party engaged in political firefighting.

This sends a clear message to anyone wants to protest that Gandhigiri ways do not work. Copy the Jat agitation of 2016 when rail tracks were uprooted causing Rs 100 crore loss to the Railway?

Lucknow citizens come out in support of protesting Tamil Nadu farmers

As the Tamil Nadu farmers took their protest against central government up a notch in Delhi by drinking urine after over 40 days of consistent protest, a number of individuals in Lucknow came out in their support at Gandhi statue on Sunday. Extending solidarity to the cause of the farmer that the group called life giver, a number of suggestions poured in on the way forward. The group now plans to take up the farmer’s fight together, organise confidence building amongst them, involve schools in the process and create a mass movement for the cause.

“It is deplorable that farmers in the past few weeks have had to use such ways of peaceful protest where they have put rats in their mouth, eaten grass, protested with skulls. They have now had to drink their urine and not even one representative of the government has met with them,” “This is not less than a death of democracy. What more should the farmer do to get the government;s attention?” - said Deepak Kabir.

the attendees condemned accusations by some of the farmer protests being ‘sponsored’.

“I will give my entire month’s’ salary to the person who can undertake all the protest ways that have been used by the farmers at Jantar Mantar. Who can do such things to oneself even if being sponsored?” - Awadesh, a teacher by profession.

Thanks the kind hearts for the support.

300 Maoist guerillas attacked 99-member CRPF troop

hundreds of Maoists on Monday ambushed and massacred at least 25 CRPF personnel in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district and escaped with their AK-47 assault rifles. The “strong” 99-member CRPF battalion was on foot patrolling the interior road — the team was entrusted with the task of providing security to a road construction project — when it came under sudden attack.

Many families lost thier love one.

Update: Why was the troops killed?

The Dand Karanya Special Zonal Committee (DKSZC) of the banned Communist Party of India (Maoist) claimed in an audio clip on Thursday that the massacre of 25 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans in Sukma on Tuesday was a response to sexual violence by security forces against tribal women, and murder of villagers.

It was further said in the audio clip that the attack was an answer to the Mission 2017, to the state-directed police atrocities on tribals and “innumerable instances of rape, and gangrapes, of tribal women and girls by security forces.”

So the rapist and sick souls are punhised.

TN bandh

In support of farmers a one-day shutdown/bandh is called on Tuesday 25th April by all parties exculuding AIADMK and BJP

Poor rains have left Tamil Nadu battling a severe drought. The government had in January declared all the state’s 32 districts drought-hit and sought help from the Centre.

While shops, hotels downed their shutters in the capital Chennai and other parts of the southern state, government buses were seen on roads. Offices, too, were open.

Cinema halls were closed for the day and the film fraternity expressed its support by cancelling shoots. Staff at fuel stations were wearing black badges.

Outside Chennai, the shutdown got a good response, especially in the Cauvery Delta, the rice bowl of the state. In Thanjavur, most businesses were shut and buses off the road. In Cuddalore private buses and auto rickshaws stayed away while shops were closed in Tirunelveli.

Neighbouring Puducherry, too, joined the protest.

WannaCry - Ransomware spreads to dozens of countries

May 12, 2017: A ransomware attack seemingly based on leaked NSA hacking tools is spreading like wildfire among unpatched Windows systems worldwide. WannaCry aka WanaCrypt0r 2.0 or WannaCry or WCry, is a ransomware. WannaCry program encrypts your files and demands payment in bitcoin in order to regain access. The broad based ransomware attack has hit as many as 200,000+ victims in over 150 countries.

WannaCry exploited a vulnerability in the Windows operating system believed to have been developed by the United States’ National Security Agency (NSA), which became public last month. WannaCry exploits a vulnerability in Microsoft and that Microsoft patched this in March. People don’t always install updates and patches on their computers and so this means vulnerabilities can remain open a lot longer and make things easier for hackers to get in.

A grand coup planned to split the Aam Aadmi Party

Its been months some members has been working aginst AAP, buy getting money from BJP. Had it not been for a driver, Arvind Kejriwal may have become the ‘former’ Chief Minister of Delhi by now.

It nothing wrong with BJP trying to split the AAP, but this exposes the cheap elements within AAP.

IT raids in Former Union finance minister P Chidambaram and his sons office/receidents

The agency is examining all Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) approvals during the period Chidambaram was finance minister, and in which Karti was directly or indirectly involved.

While Chidambaram was finance minister in 2007-08, not only did the FIPB ignore the criminality in the proposal of INX Media, which allegedly paid Rs 3.50 crore to Karti, but “undue favour was shown to the company”, the agency said.

It also said Karti influenced finance ministry officials “by virtue of his relationship with the then finance minister”.

Officer who tied protester to jeep in Kashmir is awarded a Medal

Major Leetul Gogoi, Army officer (from 53 Rashtriya Rifles) who drove the jeep with a man tied at the front during protests in Jammu and Kashmir in April has been awarded a Medal of Commendation by Army Chief Bipin Rawat.

After the video went viral on social media, the army had to face severe criticism, with some reports saying that the act was constituted a war crime. The man, who was seen in the video tied to an army jeep during Kashmir by-polls was later identified as Farooq Dar. When media personnel contacted Farroq Dar, he denied being a stone-pelter and said,

“Never in My life I have thrown stones. I am a worker who knows some carpentry and embroidery. This is what I do.” - Farroq Dar (the victim)

This defines the real image of the Indian Army, just like the picture of Napalm girl clicked during the Vietnam war

After strugle Indian Woman Uzma Ahmed retruns from Pakistan

“Pakistan is like a well of death”, said Uzma Ahmed

Uzma Ahmed, who belongs to New Delhi, and Ali “fell in love” in Malaysia, after which she travelled to Pakistan on May 1, via the Wagah border.

The woman claimed she was forced at gunpoint to marry Buner resident Tahir Ali. She took refuge at the Indian High Commission in Islamabad because she felt threatened, and wanted to return to her country of birth.

Uzma claimed she was forced at gunpoint to marry Buner resident Tahir Ali. During the court hearing, Pakistani judge Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani asked Uzma if she wanted to meet her husband in the chamber but she refused the offer, saying she did not want to talk to him. The High Court ordered that Uzma can go back to her country and the case will be processed in her absence.

Uzma travelled to Lahore from Islamabad and was accompanied by Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P. Singh. She stayed in Pakistan for 25 days. Near the Wagah border she was escorted by Pakistani security personnel. She prostrated and kissed the ground as soon as she entered Indian territory.

She thanked the government of India, particularly External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for making her return possible and making her realize “the value of my life as an Indian citizen”.

“I am proud to be an Indian citizen. Sushma madam would call me every day to say we are fighting for you, you are our daughter, you are India’s daughter,” she said, recounting the days she spent at the Indian High Commission in Islamabad.

I advise Indian Muslim women not to get married & settled in Pakistan.The women there have no freedom at all.I’m proud being an Indian - Uzma

Greater Noida gang rape

A man was shot dead and four women of his family were allegedly gang-raped at gunpoint in the early hours of Thursday on the highway near Jewar in Uttar Pradesh, around 68 km from Delhi.

The family of 4 men and 4 women was travelling in a car from Jewar, which is in Greater Noida, to Bulandshahr, to visit a relative in hospital. Their car reportedly stopped after hitting a metal object in the middle of the highway around 1 am.

When some members of the family came out to investigate, six armed men allegedly surrounded the car, dragged the women out and gang-raped them before looting the family. A 45-year-old man was shot dead when he tried to save the women.

Members of the family say before getting out of the car, they called the police for help, suspecting something was wrong. The police still took more than an hour to arrive, they claim.

Similar to one last year (2016) near the highway in Bulandshahr, when another family was targeted by a group of armed men. A woman and her 13-year-old daughter were pulled out of the car and gang-raped in the fields while the men of the family were tied up and beaten.

Election Commission: Do not touch, but prove EVM are hacked

No political party has applied to take part in the EVM tampering challenge of the Election Commission on June 3

Reason: The conditions put by the Election Commission: The Election Commission has denied us the permission to touch the voting machine.

The Election Commission yesterday rejected the demand of the AAP to allow it to tamper with the motherboard of the machine during the EVM challenge.

Why is the Election Commission running away from organising a no-holds-barred hackathon

The Election Commission knows that the EVM’s can be tampered if allowed.

I think EC expects to do some magic by staring at EVM and hack it.

Rampur molestation

A video clip of two girls being molested openly by a group of young men had recently set the social media on fire. The incident happened in Uttar Pradesh’s Rampur district.

In the video, around 12 to 14 boys can be seen, molesting the women, even while they pleaded to let them go. The boys filmed the entire development and posted it on social media. The boys were also laughing and making jokes while the distraught girls kept on begging to be spared.

Interestingly, in March, after coming to power in the state, the Yogi Adityanath government launched ‘anti-Romeo’ squads to check on eve-teasing in public areas, to ensure the safety of girls in the state.

Atmaklesh Yatra from Maharashtra farmers

As Swabhimani Shetkari Sangathana (SSS) founder Raju Shetti, who has been on an Atmaklesh (repentance) Yatra, reached Matunga — the last pit stop before Raj Bhavan, a group of about 15,000 supporters walked with him from Govandi to Matunga. Shetti is taking 6.5 lakh handwritten applications by the farmers in his home district to Raj Bhavan. He has an appointment with the Governor C Vidyasagar Rao on Tuesday. More people are expected to join Shetti’s march and the number of his supporters is expected to rise to 25,000 people.

Shetti started on his journey on foot from Pune on March 22, citing betrayal by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the 2014 general elections.

Today, after three years, I feel miserable and cheated as it was me who convinced our farmer brothers to vote for the BJP, vote for Modi. It was a big mistake that we asked the farmers to vote for the BJP. Hence, as a matter of repentance, we have undertaken this Atmaklesh Yatra. Before starting the march, I apologised to our farmers for this mistake. We have brought the issue to the notice of the Maharashtra chief minister as well as PM Narendra Modi. However, we always received vague replies. This prompted us to start our march against the government. said Shetti.

Patanjali products fail quality test

Nearly 40% of Ayurveda products, including items from Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali, were found to be of substandard quality by Haridwar’s Ayurveda and Unani Office, a Right to Information (RTI) reply revealed.

Out of the 82 samples collected between 2013 and 2016, 32 failed the quality test. Patanjali’s Divya Amla Juice and Shivlingi Beej were among the products that failed to meet the quality standards.

Last month, the armed forces’ Canteen Stores Department (CSD) had suspended the sale of a batch of Patanjali’s amla juice after it ‘failed’ a quality test carried out at West Bengal Public Health Laboratory.

IIT Madrass Student attack for eating beef

R. Sooraj, PhD Scholar and a member of the Ambedkar Periyar Study Circle, was attacked for eating beef as part of a protest against restrictions on cattle trade which was brought by Union Government. The beef-eating protest was held by a group of students on Sunday night.

Looks like beef issue is back.

RBI Planning for Bank Account Portablity

RBI deputy governor S S Mundra was speaking at an event organized by the Banking Codes and Standards Board of India. He said technological innovation and linking accounts to Aadhaar can make it easier for this to happen.

He also batted for introduction of bank account number portability using Aadhaar and various platforms of NPCI (National Payments Corporation of India).

Just like your mobile number, you could soon move your account from one bank to another without having to change the account number.

“While banks have been granted autonomy in fixing minimum average balance or charging for premier services, it should not be used as an excuse to deny or drive away services to the common man. This is what we are at tend to observe in some of the institutions…it is moving in that direction,” Deputy Governor S S Mundra said.

Declare Cow A National Animal - Rajasthan HC Judge to Center

Declare Cow A National Animal Rajasthan HC Judge Passes Unprecedented Directions One Day Before Retirement

In a 139-page judgment, Justice Mahesh Chandra Sharma of the Rajasthan High Court has passed unprecedented directions to declare cow as the national animal of India and its killers be sentenced to life imprisonment.

Cows are the only animal inhale and exhale oxygen

What if Cow becomes National Animal istead of Tiger?

Answer is simple, Cow will become extinct animal like tiger.

Peacocks are brahmacharis (celibate)

Peacock is the national bird as it never has sex with peahen, says Rajasthan High Court judge Justice Mahesh Chandra Sharma, that means peacocks are brahmacharis (celibate) who impregnate peahens with their tears.

Peacock too has his qualities. He is a life-long celibate. He does not indulge in sex with peahen. The peahen gives birth after it gets impregnated with the tears of the peacock. A peacock or a peahen is then born… Lord Krishna used peacock’s feather for celibacy of the bird - Rajasthan High Court judge Justice Mahesh Chandra Sharma.

Do you think Indian judiciary is in safe hands ?

Cows up for sale online OLX

Hamstrung by the government’s restrictions on sale of cattle, farmers and livestock traders have found greener pastures in digital India. So, a swift search on online marketplaces such as OLX shows that hundreds of cows are up for sale in the virtual world.

The environment ministry decreed last week that animal markets could only trade cattle for agricultural purposes, such as ploughing and dairy production. The rule came as part of a tough new law against

It’s not that cows have not been sold on e-commerce websites before. They have been available occasionally under the pets section. But there has been a sudden surge since the BJP swept to power in Uttar Pradesh in March with priest-turned politician Yogi Adityanath taking the chief minister’s post, and the rise of the gau rakshaks, or cow vigilantes.

India GDP growth enters slow lane in Q4 at 6.1%

India’s economic growth fell to 6.1 per cent in the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2016-17 (FY17), primarily because of demonetisation adversely affecting economic activity. This was at least a four-quarter low.

The sectors worst affected were construction and financial services. The effect of demonetisation was evident in the figures, with growth being pushed primarily by agriculture and government spending.

6.1 GDP growth for FY17 includes government consumption, without which real GDP growth is just 5.6 per cent, much lower than an average growth of 7.2 per cent in the previous four years.

GDP over quaters of 2016-17

  • Q1 - 7.9
  • Q2 - 7.5
  • Q3 - 7.0
  • Q4 - 6.1

If India has to emerge as the manufacturing, economic powerhouse in the Asia, competing with China, it needs to grow much more than the 7 percent mark, create more jobs and facilitate investments.

Modi Govt would have done well acknowledging the impact of demonetisation on the economy and take corrective measures instead of being in denial mode. His admission that demonetisation was performed on the economy that was already fighting a slowdown directly contradicts the claim of his boss who said economy was doing well at that point and was ready for a surgery.

We have some of the biggest problems that needs to be addresed like,

  • Close PSU’s that are making loss
  • Create local jobs
  • Admit there is problem and work towards solving it
  • Beyond passing a bankruptcy law, Govt did nothing
  • The most important, stop politicising and blame game, work towards progress you will voted back next time

Also the stock market is now lunatic, creates a bubble ready to explode mostly powered by local investors.

Warning: There is well known speed breaker ahead, GST roll out

Moody’s - India’s debt level is significantly higher

India’s debt level is “significantly” higher compared with similarly rated countries, Moody’s Investor Service said

Rating agencies have India just above junk status. Moody’s said that while the general government debt level declined to 67.5 percent of GDP in 2016 from 84.7 percent in 2003, it remains a key credit constraint.

Moody’s notes that India’s debt burden is higher than most of its Baa peers including the Bahamas and South Africa. (Baa is medium-grade credit risk). Moody’s India rating is at Baa3, the lowest on that rung.

Five Gulf nations snap ties with Qatar over terrorism

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates Bahrain and Yemen severed their ties with Qatar on Monday, accusing it of supporting terrorism, opening up the worst rift in years among some of the most powerful states in the Arab world.

The coordinated move dramatically escalates a dispute over Qatar’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood, the world’s oldest Islamist movement, and adds accusations that Doha even backs the agenda of regional arch-rival Iran.

Announcing the closure of transport ties with Qatar, the three Gulf states gave Qatari visitors and residents two weeks to leave their countries. Qatar was also expelled from a Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen.

The highlight is Just 10 days before US President Donald Trump made visit to Saudi Arabia and Israel. Is this the effect of his visit ? . Something does not look good, can Qatar be next Afgan, Iran, Libya or Syria. Only God knows.

Justice Karnan in hiding retires

Justice Karnan was appointed a judge of the Madras high court in 2009. He was transferred to the Calcutta HC on March 11, 2016.

Justice CS Karnan was held guilty of contempt by a seven-judge constitution bench of Supreme Court after he named 20 judges he said were “corrupt” earlier this year, and wrote to several people, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, asking for an investigation.

A seven-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of India JS Khehar had passed the unprecedented arrest order against Karnan. The Justice became the first sitting High Court judge to be convicted for contempt. The Supreme Court also directed Justice Karnan to undergo psychiatric analysis for mental stability

This event shows the state of caste power and not even the SC Justices are spared when they talk about the truth

Muslim boy stabbed to death on train after argument over seat

Haryana: One minor Muslim boy was allegedly stabbed to death by a mob, when an argument over a seat in train.

The four youth (Junaid, Hashim, Shakir and Mohsin of which Junaid died) were initially abused with religious slurs while travelling back to their village in Haryana after shopping in Delhi for Eid.

“One of them pushed my brother Junaid. He initially thought that it was unintentional as the bogie was crowded. But when he did it again, my brother asked them to behave. The man got angry and threw Junaid’s skull cap on the floor. The man started calling him an anti-national and asked us all to vacate the seat,” Hashim said

An altercation over seats escalated to violence as passengers in no time formed a larger mob and started beating up the four youth.

One among the survivors tried pulling the emergency chain, but their distress call went in vain as the train did not stop, also the railway policemen did not respond to their requests for help.

The youths deboarded the train at Tughlaquabad station and got up in the adjoining bogie. Meanwhile, Hashim called his brother, Sakir, and narrated the episode, asking him to pick them up from Ballabgarh station.

“We thought it was over, but they came looking for us again. The train stopped at Ballabgarh and as we were about to get down, a man with a knife blocked the gate,” Hashim said.

“While Mohsin managed to jump down, Junaid, Moin and me got stuck inside. Meanwhile, Sakir, whom I had called also boarded the train to rescue us and got stuck. The men then locked the gate and the train started again. None of the passengers came to their help. “Instead, they asked those men to finish us all,” Hashim added.

4 men held Junaid by his arms and one of them stabbed him multiple times in his chest.

PM Modiji: Lynchings over beef In whose name, then, ?

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has today spoken on the issue of cow vigilantism, again. This is only the second time he has lashed out at so-called gau rakshaks, reminding the nation that there is no place for those who take the law into their hands to harass and murder Muslims in the name of the cow.

Today I want to say a few words and express sadness on some of the things going on. We are a land of non violence. We are the land of Mahatma Gandhi. Why do we forget that. No one spoke about protecting cows more than Mahatma Gandhi and Acharya Vinoba Bhave. Yes. It should be done. Killing people in the name of Gau Bhakti is not acceptable. This is not something Mahatma Gandhi would approve. As a society, there is no place for violence. No person in this nation has the right to take the law in his or her own hands in this country. Violence never has and never will solve any problem. Let’s all work together. Let’s create the India of Mahatma Gandhi’s dreams. Let’s create an India our freedom fighters would be proud of. - PM Modi

Paul Krugman blames demonetisation and RBI policies

Noted economist and Nobel laureate Paul Krugman blamed the Narendra Modi government’s decision to demonetise high-vale currency notes and the RBI’s tight monetary policy for India’s disappointing GDP

“Your 6% growth is actually disappointing,” the American economist said at the State Bank of India’s Mega Conclave in Mumbai. “You probably should be doing 8% to 9%.”

“It was shock therapy that was not well advised,” the economist said. “It is not going to make any lasting dent in corruption, and it could do a significant amount of damage to the economy.”

India, China Border dispute on behalf of Bhutan

One is that India is decisively intervening on behalf of Bhutan.

Here is what happened: The Chinese have long nibbled at Bhutan’s borders without India doing too much about it. Atop the Dokalam plateau the Chinese army has been making paths, converting them into roads and then pouring concrete on them as part of a pattern of slowly encroaching on the Bhutanese claim area. Standard Sun Tzu-meets-Chinese bulldozers stuff.

The Indian military are quite clear this plateau matters to them. If China were to take it over, the tri-junction of the India-China-Bhutanese border would actually move southward several kilometres. In jawan-speak that would bring a swathe of Sikkim and North Bengal under long-range Chinese artillery fire.

The second message is in India’s decision to stand up for its closest ally. Until now, Thimpu has buckled before Beijing in part because it was uncertain if India would have their back. Many “friends of India” have been eaten by geopolitical lions simply because they ran into trouble at a time when New Delhi had slipped into a bout of navel-gazing.

Indian government decided to block the Chinese military road-building team and say, “Bhutan’s fight is our fight.” Much of Beijing’s outrage is its surprise that, in its eyes, India has unilaterally changed the rules of the game.

Chinese government has grumbled about India helping Bhutan and the Dalai Lama visiting Arunachal Pradesh.

There is also another posibility of China’s Army entring Kashmir on behalf of Pak using the “same logic” the Indian Army used to stop the Chinese military from constructing a road in the Doklam area in the Sikkim sector on behalf of Bhutan. Tit for tat.

Next what war? only time will tell.
