Cultural terrorism: Tavleen Singh

This could be the time for the Government of India to think seriously about setting up a Ministry for Hurt Feelings. The suggestion was made by someone in jest on Twitter but since these days not a week goes by without some group or other feeling hurt for some reason or other, it could be an idea whose time has come. Once all those with 'hurt feelings' have been directed to seek assuagement from the new ministry, the rest of us may have a chance to get on with dealing with India's real problems.

A small example is necessary here. The groups that suffer most on account of the inexplicable inability of our political leaders to win the war against poverty are Muslims and Dalits because they, along with Adivasis, constitute the largest group of Indians below the poverty line. This makes it even more puzzling that they should care so much about the passing remarks of a sociologist and a film about terrorism. The Vishwaroopam controversy is beyond belief. In today's context the biggest terrorist problem in the world has been created by people who call themselves 'jihadis' so if Kamal Hassan has them play a villainous role in his film, so what?

Unfortunately, 'so what' is something the hurt feelers always seem unable to articulate. If only they would start feeling more hurt about the horrendous poverty and unspeakable squalor in which most of their brethren live. But, that is not something our political leaders guide them toward because then they would have to start delivering on their election promises. Much easier to distract the 'peepul' by encouraging them to vent their feelings against Salman Rushdie or Kamal Hassan so that the ineptitude of chief ministers can be momentarily forgotten in the excitement of burning cinemas and books.

Of course the long-term consequences of this kind of intellectual intimidation is incalculable but this is not something political leaders are worried about. So as the size of the Indian middle class grows and as the social media becomes accessible to many more we are likely to encounter more and more hurt feelings. Cynical politicians know well how to exploit them. It is something they learned a long time ago if you remember that the first country to ban The Satanic Verses was India. Hardly anyone had read the book at the time but Muslim feelings were 'hurt'. On behalf of hurt Muslims, Indian governments have gone out of their way to harass Rushdie. So when Mamata Banerjee banned him from entering Kolkata last week she did it in keeping with an old tradition.

In the general hysteria over hurt feelings what is forgotten is that India is a democratic, secular country and if we want this idea of India to survive we must allow full freedom of expression. This includes the right of filmmakers and writers to bring religion into the realm of cinema and literature no matter how ugly the discourse gets. I wrote recently in this column that I did not think it was right to arrest Akbar Owaisi for his venomous speech because in a democracy he has the right to make it. If Hindutva types found it offensive they had the right to take him to court but not to resort to violence. If they choose the latter to vent their hurt feelings, then it should be the duty of the state to arrest them.

This is what the government of Tamil Nadu should have done with those groups who made plans to burn down cinemas in which Vishwaroopam was being screened. This is what the government of West Bengal should have done to those who wanted to prevent Rushdie from attending the Kolkata literary festival. And, this is what the Gujarat government should have done to those Hindus with hurt feelings who burned the paintings of M.F. Hussain. Why does it never happen? Could it be because it is much easier to arrest writers, painters and filmmakers than terrorists?

This is another old tradition. The Indian state is brutal when it comes to soft targets and gutless when it comes to dealing with real terrorists. So lovers on Marine Drive routinely get arrested by the police while rapists roam free. This uniquely Indian approach to law and order is one of the serious problems that could enter public discourse if we could find time to get away from the violent activities of hurt feelers. So it is my humble suggestion to the Prime Minister that he dissolve the minorities and scheduled castes and tribes commissions into one large Ministry of Hurt Feelings. Let it be in a place with a large open area in front of it so that all manner of anger can be expressed by all manner of groups peacefully. No violence. No intellectual terrorism.

ISLAMIC ACTIVISM WILL STRENGTHEN
TAMILNADU BJP
By
Lt Col CR Sundar, President TamilNadu
BJP ExServicemen’s Cell

Karunanidhi and Jayalalithaa, the two Dravidian leaders of
the people of Tamilnadu have down the years wooed and mollified Muslims of
various shades. Jayalalithaa has never failed to publicize her attending Iftar
during Ramzan. Karunanidhi on his part has gone out of his way to keep his
faction of the Muslim League intact.
All this was OK so long as the muslims themselves did not
indulge in activism. But three recent events have changed all this. In
mid-September 2012 for three days muslims blocked the arterial Anna Salai
bringing Chennai to a standstill protesting against a Hollywood movie about
which the people of Tamilnadu had nothing to do. Again in mid-November last
year muslims of Tamilnadu went into protest mode against the Vijay starrer movie
Thuppakki. And now Tamilnadu muslims are protesting over Kamal Haasan’s movie
Vishwaroopam.
In all cases Jayalalithaa has shamefully succumbed to
pressure from Muslims and has failed to protect the rights of the people of
Tamilnadu. In the case of Vishwaroopam she moved with amazing alacrity to ban
the film.
Luckily we have a wise judiciary.
But what about a time when the judiciary has not been
brought in to adjudicate and people of Tamilnadu are left in the lurch because
a few Dravidians have gotten into collusion with Islamist? Where will the
people go?
History gives us the answer. When the princelings of
Rajasthan and Central India blatantly supported the Islamic Moguls it was those
who believed in Hinduthva that stood up and retrieved the nation. In a similar
manner when the weak willed Dravidians succumb to Islamic pressure and try to
trample over the people of Tamilnadu, Bharatiya Janatha Party will be their last
bastion.
Meanwhile we have a question for Jawahirulla Bhai. He says
23 Islamic organizations have come together to protest against Vishwaroopam.
Where were these organizations when Indian soldiers were ambushed by cowardly
Pakistanis on the LOC and our soldiers’ heads cut off and carried away? None of
them even raised a whisper against this.
The subject of my dissertation in Staff College was
‘Terrorism the New Weapon’. That was in 1980. Today let us be clear. Islamic
terror is an existing reality. Everyone is scared to visit a railway station or
travel by train on 5 or 6 December because there is always the fear that some
Islamist may plant a bomb.
What is more, on a TV discussion, Javed Akhthar severely
criticized Islamic Jehadists and wanted other panelists to openly declare Osama
Bin Laden and the members of Al-queda and Taliban as terrorists and therefore
not muslims. There were three muslims on the panel. Not one of them was
prepared to make such a declaration.
Bharatiya Janatha Party and its earlier forms have always
stood for India as a united and strong Bharat where all sections of the society
enjoy equal rights and share in its prosperity. However, BJP also maintains
that every citizen should be patriotic. Extra regional allegiance and talks of
global Islam are abhorred. Also BJP finds the succumbing of Tamilnadu government
led by Dravidians to competitive intolerance as unacceptable.
The people of Tamilnadu are watching the conduct of
Dravidian leaders. It is the people of Tamilnadu who have voted them to power
and are holding them up – not the muslims alone. If the Dravidians are going to
meekly bow to the threats of muslims and not uphold common societal rights it
will not be long before the Dravidians get brushed aside by the people of
Tamilnadu.

true lies of sushil kumar shinde
The RSS and the BJP were behind the Samjhauta Express, Mecca Masjid and Malegaon blasts,” declared Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde on January 20, 2013, adding that the training camps run by the RSS and BJP were promoting ‘Hindu terrorism’. A day after Shinde’s declaration, Hafiz Saeed, leader of the LeT, the Pakistan-based Islamist terrorist outfit, called for a ban on the RSS. So Shinde is the witness for the LeT to accuse the RSS of terror.

Now look at the evidence, first the blast onboard the Samjhauta Express from Pakistan in which 68 persons were killed. LeT Culprit, say UN, US

Pakistan Minister’s Confession

Six months after the UN and US announced sanctions against the LeT and Qasmani, Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Mallik himself admitted that Pakistani terrorists were involved in the Samjhauta blast, but with a rider that “some Pakistan-based Islamists had been hired by Lt Col Purohit to carry out the Samjhauta Express attack.” [India Today Online 24.1.2010]


Headley Involved in Samjhauta -- US Probe

Narco Test Pointed to SIMI Role

Conspiracy by Maharashtra Police?

Why were these clinching pieces of evidence not pursued? How the blame shifted from the Islamists to the Hindus? Some elements in the Maharashtra Police appears to have colluded in linking the 2008 Malegaon blast to the Samjhauta blast. When leads were thus pointing to Pakistan and SIMI as partners in the Samjhauta blast, in November 2008, as an anti-climax, the Maharashtra Anti-Terror Squad [ATS] shockingly told the Special Court through the public prosecutor that Col Purohit allegedly involved in the Malegaon blast in which RDX was used, had supplied RDX for the Samjhauta blast though one ‘Bhagwan’. [The Indian Express 15.11.2008] Within the next 48 hours, [17.11.2008] India Today online refuted the ATS claim saying that Samjhauta investigators had told India Today that a study of the blast by the National Security Guard(NSG) said that no RDX, but Potassium Chlorate and Sulphur, had been used as explosives. The magazine also recalled that immediately after the blasts, then Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil told the media that not RDX, but, a ‘new type of explosive’ had been used to bomb the Samjhauta Express. On that very day [17.11.2008] the ATS counsel retracted the statement he had made earlier involving Col Purohit in the Samjhauta blast. [The Hindu dt19.11.2008]. But the damage was done in the 48 hours. Immediately, Pakistan said that it would raise the issue of Purohit’s involvement in Samjhauta at the Secretary-level meeting on November 25, 2008. Finally on January 20, 2009, the Maharashtra ATS officially denied that Col Purohit had supplied RDX for Samjhauta. This was how the Samjhauta focus -- later the blame -- shifted from the LeT and the SIMI to Purohit and via Purohit on to Saffron. The Maharashtra ATS’ attempt to link Malegaon 2008 to Samjhauta, which shifted the focus away from the LeT on to Purohit, needs to be probed particularly given Dawood Ibrahim’s deep influence on Maharashtra Police.

If Shinde is telling the truth, then the United Nations Security Council and the US Treasury Department are fabricating charges against Qasmani, Dawood and the LeT; Faiza Outallah and The Washington Post are telling lies to fix the LeT and Pakistan; the SIMI officials’ narco evidence is fabricated; and Rehman Mallik’s confession about Pakistani involvement is false. Can it be more ridiculous? It is clearly the lies of Shinde, the vote bank politician versus all neutral evidence


rahul gandhi, pc, shinde, diggy raja all have been spouting lies for the last few years.
To top it rahul is the leadel of the gleat congis and its supporters.

The amount of gymnastics the "seculars" have to do to justify their pet munnas is amazing. Check out the gems in this opinion page article in the Hindu:
Demonising the minority

Suresh Nambath


When Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa came out in defence of her government’s decision to suspend the screening of Vishwaroopam she certainly was not in sympathy with the Muslim organisations that wanted a ban on the film for having hurt Islamic religious sentiments. Although Muslim organisations hailed the government’s decision, she made it clear that more than hurt sentiments, she was worried about the threat to law and order posed by those opposed to the film on religious grounds.

None of the organisations openly opposing the ban issued any threat of violence, but the government evidently viewed them as troublemakers, and not just as religious organisations voicing, within the ambit of law, their sense of hurt at the manner in which Vishwaroopam depicted Islam and Muslims.


Problematic assumptions

There are several assumptions behind these estimates: one, that the organisations demanding the ban were truly representative of the community as a whole; two, Muslims would come out in large numbers to participate in protests called by these organisations; and three, these protests would not remain peaceful.

All three assumptions are problematic. True, protests by the Tamil Nadu Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam (TMMK) and the Tamil Nadu Thoweed Jamaath over the film on Prophet Mohammed, Innocence of Muslims, outside the American consulate and on roads in Chennai last September were violent. But this was because the police were totally unprepared for such protests, and did little to bring the situation under control. Police inefficiency and not a mass upsurge of Muslims was responsible for disrupting normal life at that time. :rotfl: :rotfl:

So when certain community blocks a whole city, its police fault and if the police uses the danda to thrash them, it is again the police fault.

But a other majority community had done the same for a week, wonder what this %^#& would have written about that?

But moderate voices in the community got no play at all. As a result, the Muslim community in the State has, in effect, been projected as prone to irrational violence at the slightest provocation, whether imagined or real, even though they are by no means extreme in their views and actions.

People have a right to protest what they see as objectionable as long as they don’t violate the law. But when the government overreacts to announcements of protest by Muslim organisations, and behaves either overly defensively or overly aggressively, then it aids in the stereotyping of the Muslim community as sectarian, backward in outlook and prone to irrational violence.

The TMMK is an ally of the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), but the ruling party does not appear to have meant to give in to a few Muslim organisations with the aim of gaining their political support. No matter what the intention, the effect of the ban is likely to be the demonising of the minority community as a problematic Other. Threats to freedom of expression aside, the banning of films under the pretext of complying with the demands of a particular community could have grave implications in a State where the ruling party has at times pursued a majoritarian agenda. The impact of the Vishwaroopam controversy will be felt long after the commotion over it dies down.

So the rioting, bomb blasts, hailing of Osama with giant rallies etc are just imagined by communal majority and the minority needs to be treated with kid gloves lest they be "unfairly demonised"!!

^^^ Nothing unusual here.This is a grand western design to demolish Hinduism. The white pakis scholars and Universities are propoganding the muslim card and the ameerkhan universities and evenjeehadis push for the dalits,sc-st,caste etc.In the long run the Hindus though being in majority in regards to numbers will be in minority in all other aspects of life in Hindustan.These so called western scholars work very closely with the psecs of the great Indian Nation.

The Indian dhimmis grovel before white skin and allow Goras to come to their country to spit bile at them and create a sense of victimhood among Muslims. The hatred Gora monotheists have for Hinduism is unbelievable. A curse on babus for hosting these jokers in our own country.

But what about the idea of India?
Kamal, his artistic freedom and his alleged idiosyncrasies are the smaller order of things
.

Did we not say that about Islamist. AoA not Compatible with IoA=Idea Of India )

The larger question is the idea of India, its government and governance. How will the world view us when a handful of demonstrators terrorise our governments to ban a movie? Who will invest in India when a few truckloads of fanatics can cause the closure of the highly protected and centrally located US embassy in a prominent city? How does all this impact the business sentiments of India?This is where upholding the law, especially by the government, becomes crucial. It may be understood that the basic function of any government is to strengthen rule of law by simply upholding it in totality. While strong governments uphold the law of the land, weak governments abdicate their responsibility.
It is in this connection the Rule of Law Index contained in the World Justice Project focuses on how countries uphold law using quantitative assessment tools. The index assesses a nation’s adherence to the rule of law and how “law deficit” could impact the lives of its citizens.
The nine different dimensions used by the index include powers of government, absence of corruption, order and security, fundamental rights, open government, regulatory enforcement, civil justice, criminal justice and informal justice. The outcome of this novel yet important exercise at a global level measures the extent to which countries adhere to the rule of law -- not in theory but in practice.
Expectedly, India is ranked a poor 83 [out of 97 countries] when it comes to the absence of corruption. Interestingly, we are ranked a poorer 96 when it comes to order and security, 79 on regulatory enforcement, 78 on civil justice, 64 on criminal justice and 64 on fundamental rights. So much for the proclaimed adherence to the rule of law by our government!All these have a profound impact on the working of the Indian economy. Economists (and that includes the prime minister too) have failed to factor this crucial aspect in their reforms calculus. And this is where India has been a spectacular failure in the past decade or so -- where government has failed to uphold the rule of law.There is another darker dimension to this debate. As governments abdicate their responsibilities, the courts in India fare far worse. The Ease of Doing Business 2013, a co-publication of the World Bank and the International Finance Corporation sheds light on how easy or difficult it is for a local entrepreneur to open and run a small to medium-size business when complying with relevant regulations.It measures and tracks changes in regulations affecting 11 areas in the lifecycle of a business: starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, getting credit, protecting investors, paying taxes, trading across borders, enforcing contracts, resolving insolvency and employing workers.

The handful of demonstrators terrorise the govt because the INC panders to them. I think the writer is wrong about idea of India etc when the govt wants to be terrrorised.

The GOvt had not difficulty in using Delhi Bullice to scatter the gang-rape protestors had the temerity to dilute the main poist of the Justice Verma report.

BTW the writer should look in the mirror and decide if that is the govt he wants and if psecularism is what he was batting for all these years.

His screaming "Idea of India " is in jeopardy is akin to the faithfools crying "Islam is in danger" and will meet the saem derision.

Its his "idea of India based on fake secularism" that is in danger. And its in danger from the INC and its ilk.

Kashmiri girl band Pragaash gives up after threats
An all-girl rock group in Indian-administered Kashmir say they have disbanded after the region's most senior cleric called them "un-Islamic".

"Just tell everyone we have quit. We are no more a band," one of the members of the group Pragaash told the BBC.

The three teenage members say they have received threats since they appeared at a Srinagar music event in December.

On Sunday the Muslim-majority state's grand mufti criticised them for what he said was indecent behaviour.

"When girls and young women stray from the rightful path... this kind of non-serious activity can become the first step towards our destruction," Grand Mufti Bashiruddin Ahmad said in a statement, quoted by AFP news agency.

I hope these talented young girls will not let a handful of morons silence them”

Omar Abdullah
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister
Many others have leapt to the girls' defence, however. Support for a band which has broken with tradition has poured in from all over the state and elsewhere in India, where the story has been headline news.

Abuse
Pragaash made their first live appearance at the Battle of the Bands music festival in Srinagar in December. Since then, they say they have received abuse and hate mail on their Facebook page.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has promised police will investigate the threats, and has promised the state will ensure their security.

"I hope these talented young girls will not let a handful of morons silence them," Mr Abdullah said on Twitter over the weekend.

Jammu and Kashmir is India's only Muslim-majority state and has been the scene of a violent insurgency against Indian rule since 1989.

The region has a long history of women dancing and singing in public at festivals and marriages, even though some clerics oppose such behaviour.

"Singing has been a part of our culture and we have had many famous female artistes from the region," said Mehbooba Mufti, president of the opposition People's Democratic Party.

A spokesman for the hardline Geelani faction of the separatist Hurriyat Conference distanced itself from the grand mufti's remarks.

"There is no threat to the girls. Nobody has issued any threats. It is a mere propaganda by the media," he said, adding that abuse posted on social networking sites could not be described as a threat.

See what is the level of advancement in Policing in Gujarat. May this spread to all states. Modi's administration is able to identify talent like this and give them opportunity to contribute to the nation.

A constable who develops software to nab crooks

AHMEDABAD: A woman recently walked into the Ahmedabad police's crime branch headquarters to complain about some plainclothes cops who were blackmailing her after catching her in a compromising position with her boyfriend. She had already given them gold ornaments worth Rs 50,000. Officials smelt a rat and zeroed in on fraudsters known to pose as policemen in Odhav, the area where the woman lived. The men were caught and the ornaments returned.

The speedy detection was possible because of software developed by a police constable who has not even graduated and holds a diploma in - of all things - diesel engine mechanics. Dilip Thakor, 37, has developed 'Pinak' - a search engine tailor-made to combat crime. All the cops did was type in 'Odhav' and 'fake police'. Pinak immediately threw up a long list of suspects and the woman easily picked out the culprits.

The prolific constable has developed almost a dozen software that have helped detect at least 200 crimes so far. However, only four or five of his applications are in the public domain. The rest are classified and have been used to track among others hardened terrorists. Not surprisingly, Thakor's bosses are all praise for him. "We would have paid huge amounts to get the same software from private firms. But he has made our job easy," says additional director general of police, Ashish Bhatia.

Interestingly, Thakor was not even interested in computers when he was first introduced to the world of digital code. The son of a retired police constable, he was deputed at the armoury in Mehsana in 1998. "The then superintendent of police was surprised by my concentration," he recalls. "He told me to become proficient in computers."

Thakor took the advice to heart and soon specialized in developing applications that could help his fellow-policemen do their job better. For instance, 'Pinak' contains records of 32,000 history-sheeters in Ahmedabad and is being constantly updated. Another of his brainchild 'Amarbail' tracks criminals out on bail while 'Eklavya' contains details of eight lakh vehicles in Ahmedabad which makes the task of recovering stolen vehicles easier.

Considering his penchant for software development, would he consider taking it up as a full-time career? "Not really," he says with a shy smile. "Policing is in my genes."

Software objective

Pinak: Collation of details about history-sheeters — helps in crime detection and prevention

Eklavya: Vehicle registration and details about owners

Amarbail: Details about court cases and legal status of criminals active in Gujarat

Saarthi: Licence numbers of all vehicle owners with criminal records, if any

An Indian conundrum: A nincompoop Hindu versus an aggressive Muslim

http://blogs.timesofindia.indiatimes.co ... ive-muslim

Events as they occur in quick succession beget the generic search to find the least common denominator in the sequence of such an occurrence. So begins the quest to find the weakest link in the chain before it snaps.
The recent episodic ban on screening Kamal Haasan's film 'Vishwaroopam' in Tamil Nadu theatres; the putative blacklisting of redoubtable author Salman Rushdie at Jaipur and Kolkatalitfests; and the war-mongering by Owaisi brothers in Hyderabad, threatening 80 per cent Hindus with decimation by 20 per cent Muslims ina matter of hours if the police were not to intervene, unambiguously point to the least common denominator in the chain of events.
That the aggressive Muslim is the least common denominator in the chain of which the Hindu is the weakest link.
This very indoctrinated Muslim has been the highest common factor — of blood and gore — at places such asKashmir from where they have succeeded in hounding out Hindus, threatening extermination.
Like 'Vande Matram' the title 'Vishwaroopam' is per se 'un-Islamic' for the Muslim bigot who loathes the very nomenclature of both words for they are sanskritised in etymology. The bigot fails to comprehend Vishwaroopam (the cosmic beauty) is universal to humankind just as Vande Matram (bow to motherland) is a manifestation of 'Madre Watan' (the Urdu equivalent of 'motherland').
In essence the objection is semantic than substantial. The protests by Islamic protagonists and bolstered bypolitical demagogues under the pretext that the film has an incidental reference to the Quran and portrays Muslims in a bad light is a travesty of justice, to say the least.
The portrayal of violence by Islamic zealots on the celluloid is as real as it gets on the ground; why grudge reality when the religious zealots have wreaked havoc on the earth from Kashmir to Kabul, from the far east to the Middle East to Europe, America and Africa?
Litfests at Jaipur and Kolkata, declaring Salman Rushdie persona non grata, speak volumes of forsaking the genuine pursuit of the arts, literature and culture for political expediency. The captive Muslim votebank is the mantra to an electoral victory, be it Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Rajasthan or for that matter any state in India.
What an irony! 'Firebrand' Mamata Banerjee caters to the Muslim clergy, announcing a handsome 'wazifa' (scholarship) for imams of mosques in West Bengal, ensuring the Ummah (Muslim citizenry) votes en masse for the Trinamool.
On the contrary, the leftist Hindu Bengali always cries wolf when it comes to political alignment with thenationalist Hindus, saying the 'communal forces' must be kept at bay.
The state projects the Hindu as an enemy of the nation from within as made expilicit by his 'Hindu terror' remark recently by no less a person than Sushil Kumar Shinde in his official capacity as the country's home minister, not as a private individual.
So it seems the state is on a warpath with the nation.
The aggressive Indian Muslim has thus been emboldened by the state to the bizarre yet ominous extent that Hyderabad-based MLA Owaisi makes no bones in threatening on a public platform the mass annihilationof majority Hindus by minority Muslims if the state were to play deaf-mute. Earlier, sundry Muslim politicians from Uttar Pradesh, too, had threatened majority Hindus withdire consequences if the latter dared them.
Of late, an all-girl rock band in Kashmir has been handed a fatwa by the valley's 'grand Mufti' a la Saudi Arabian decree, forbiding music as 'haraam' (taboo) under the Sharia. The band has reportedly been disbanded following life-threatening calls by Kashmiri Muslims to the singer trio.
Is Indian Muslim following the footsteps of his aggressive Kashmiri counterpart?
Will the meek Hindu Indian meet the fate of Kashmiri Pandits? The answeris not too far to seek. God save the nation if the weakest link in the chain gives way under state patronage.

How churches control election, voting in Nagaland

http://m.oneindia.in/news/2013/02/07/ho ... 44775.html

http://news.oneindia.in/img/300x40/2013 ... church.jpg


Kohima, Feb 7: In christian dominated Nagaland, churches play amajor role during election times. As Nagaland Assembly Elections 2013 is slated on Feb 23, churches have once again jumped into the election fray.
Colourful posters issued by various churches can be seen adorned across Nagaland.
The posters plea both the voters and politicians to uphold their "moral values". Churches have instructed voters and candidates to abstain from feasts, immoral sexual and other acts and substance abuse.
In fact, Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC), one of the most powerful christian bodies in the statehas asked everyone to make Feb 23 a"clean elections".
There are 1,600 churches under NBCC.This makes the NBCC the most powerful body in the state. As the reach of NBCC is too huge, thus votersare directly or indirectly influenced by instructions issued by the religious body.
"Honour individual right and freedom of choice and exercise his/her God-given wisdom to vote for God-fearing, principled and capable candidates. Abstain from indulging in election feasts, substance abuse, sexual immorality and other forms of corrupt practices which are not in tune with Christian principles," NBCC guidelines said.
"It will be more of a spiritual war. We have no agenda and are supporting none. Our sole motto is totell the truth, stand up for the truth and bring about a positive change," the church has explained.
Dr Hukashe Zhimoni, the director NBCC's development wing - the Nagaland Development Outreach (NDO), said, "We are telling the people and politicians that if you sell your vote, you sell your birthright and identity. We are going to reach out to politicians and rebel groups across the state in a week's time."
However, many feel churches should not interfere in politics.
"The domination of churches is too much in Nagaland. I am a christian. But, I don't want religion to interferewith politics," said George Ao, an entrepreneur-based in Kohima.

Babri demolition case: SC pulls up CBI

http://daily.bhaskar.com/article/NAT-TO ... 5-NOR.html
The CBI's submission in the Babari Masjid demolition case that senior BJP leader L K Advani and others had committed a 'national crime' drew a sharp reaction from the Supreme Court which asked the agency not to use such a language till the case is decided by the courts.

“Please don't say that it is a national crime or a matter of national importance. We are yet to decide it. Until we or trial court decide this way or other, you can't make such statements,” a Bench headed by Mr Justice H L Dattu said.

The Bench made the observations after senior advocate Mr P P Rao, appearing for the CBI, submitted that leaders of BJP and VHP were involved in a “national conspiracy” which was reflected in the Rathyatra and its a case of “national crime”.

Mr Rao's submission came while challenging the verdicts of special CBI court and Allahabad High Court dropping conspiracy charges against BJP leaders Mr Advani, Mr Kalyan Singh, Ms Uma Bharti Vinay Katiyar and Mr Murli Manohar Joshi.

The others against whom charges were dropped included Mr Satish Pradhan, Mr C R Bansal, Mr Ashok Singhal, Mr Giriraj Kishore, Ms Sadhvi Ritambhara, Mr V H Dalmia, Mahant Avaidhynath, Mr R V Vedanti, Param Hans Ram Chandra Das, Mr Jagdish Muni Maharaj, Mr B L Sharma, Mr Nritya Gopal Das, Mr Dharam Das, Mr Satish Nagar and Mr Moreshwar Save. During arguments, the Bench also questioned the CBI over the delay in hearings before the special court and the filing of the appeal challenging the verdicts of the two courts. “You said that it is a case of national importance. Then can you say that the translation (of court records) takes days and filing of case takes three months,” the Bench said.

The agency pleaded that it should be allowed to file a fresh affidavit to explain its stand but the bench turned it down and said no fresh affidavits or material will be allowed to be placed before it.

The Bench, however, allowed CBI to file documents which were referred to in the verdicts of the special court and high court. The court adjourned the hearing till 13 February, after Mr Rao pleaded for some time to go through the files of the case.

Earlier on 6 December, 2012, the SC had asked a Rae Bareily court to expeditiously hear the Babari Masjid demolition case of Ayodhya against Mr Advani and the others.

The CBI moved the SC challenging the 21 May, 2010 order of Allahabad High Court, which had upheld a special court's decision to drop the charges against the leaders.

The High Court had at that time, however, allowed the CBI to proceed with other charges against Mr Advani and others in a Rae Bareily court, under which the disputed structure falls.

The May 2010 order of the HC had said there was no merit in the CBI's revision petition against the 4 May, 2001 order of the special court which directed dropping of criminal conspiracy charges against them.

There are two sets of cases ~ one against Mr Advani and others who were on the dais at Ram Katha Kunj in Ayodhya in December 1992 when the Babari Masjid was demolished, while the other case was against lakhs of unknown 'karsevaks' who were in and around the disputed structure.

The CBI had charge-sheeted Advani and 20 others under Sections 153A IPC (promoting enmity between classes), 153B (imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integration) and 505 (false statements, rumours etc circulated with the intent to cause mutiny or disturb public peace). It had subsequently invoked charges under Section 120 B (Criminal Conspiracy) which was quashed by the special court whose decision was upheld by the HC.

Bal Thackeray's name was removed from the list of accused persons after his death recently. While upholding the special court's order, the High Court had said the CBI at no point of time, either during the trial at Rae Bareily or in its revision petition, ever stated that there was offence of criminal conspiracy against the leaders.

Per NDTV and IBN he is still not handed. Probably he passed into Pak and his name got changed to Tehrik Khan. But to the public they will say that he is hanged and his body is vaporized into sea. Who knows the truth.

(R)NDTV confirming the hanging of the MC.
My condolences to Suzanne Roy, Purefool Bidwai and other assorted a$$holes who supported the clemency.
