The govt of Telangana knew exactly what it wanted to do. THeir CM CHandra Shekhar Rao had earlier made a statement whether these criminals were humans or animals. YEsterday a ministher from his cabinet gave this statement. See bolded part.

https://www.deccanchronicle.com/nation/ ... -mini.html

On Saturday, Telangana minister backed the alleged killing of four accused in the murder-cum-rape case of a veterinarian near Hyderabad in an encounter saying that anybody who commits a crime so cruel can expect to be eliminated in a police encounter.

"This is a lesson. If your conduct is wrong, you won't benefit from any court trial, prison sentence or subsequent bail as the case drags on. There will not be anything like that anymore. Through this, we have sent across a message that if you do something that's so wrong and cruel, there will be an encounter," Talasani Srinivas Yadav, the State Animal Husbandry Minister, said in an interview with a local television channel.

Yadav also termed the killing of the accused, an incident condemned by rights groups and senior officers in the judiciary, as an example of the K Chandrashekar Rao government's commitment to alleviating the law and order situation in the state.

"This is a very strong message we have sent. This is an ideal we have set for the country. We are setting a model not just through our welfare schemes but also through our handling of law-and-order issues," the senior minister said, adding that picking on the Chief Minister in this regard will not help because there are many who support him.


He has since then watered down his comments (And this article contains it) but the message will have gone out to all would-be rapists and innocent people alike what was implied. I dont think anyone will expect an encounter in a case of rape with no murder but they will get special treatment by the police.

I understand this was made in vernacular language and on TV. The message will spread far.

As to the legalities and the moralities of this position by an elected government senior official (in contradiction to a prior statement by the CJI Bobde 3 days ago) - I have no interest in debating. A 1 minute google search will throw up more brilliant and insightful points than what I can come up wiht, of which I care nothing about, frankly.

We need to stop blaming the British beyond a point - they did not ask us to continue with the colonial administrative machinery post-independence. That was entirely our choice, as was the choice to not think of changing anything over six decades. The fact that the police still operates under an 1861 law written for the benefit of a colonial administration only proves my point. The end result is that this machinery, which includes the whole edifice supported by IAS, IPS and the (judicial) district magistrates, inspires little confidence in the common man. In fact, the common man understands this so well that he is not asking why the poor victims never thought to call the police as a first resort - there is an understanding, even if unwritten, that calling them would not have helped. In any situation, the initial reaction in India is to NOT involve the police, and sadly, it is with good reason. Till we fix that, nothing will change and we will discuss yet another horrendous crime a decade later.

This does not take anything away from the reality of the tough lives of police officers - I am sure an overworked police force is a good contributor to this lack of confidence.

Lastly, I understand this was only a tangential point in your post, DharmaB-ji, but we tend to blame the British for creating a bunch of problems (which they definitely did), but we almost never analyse why we didn't fix those problems and let them fester over time. Heck, when it comes to L&O, we have hardly even tried to reform. This crime in a different country would have involved the police from the get go, and the victim might have been saved at least from death.


No arshyam ji. The Britishers are the main culprits along with Brown sahebs who inherited power in collusion with them. It is only the illusion of masses that we Indians got freedom in true sense, but not, as rightly said in a dialog in recent movie "Gumnami" by the lead character. We are too naive to assume that we were free to choose the system we wished for. And judiciary is the top most inefficient system we inherited which meant only for not working for the benefit of common man and the country. Because judicial system is the last one any one would attempt to change, until it is proven inefficient like with the harsh rape and terror incidents we are seeing these days and accused escaping scott free. And what would any L&O or Judiciary people do except following the written laws, procedures which were tire some to follow without any satisfying results. The good people among them are also may be feeling exhausted and crying inside for change.

The Brits left nearly 75 years ago. At least 5-6 generations of our own "leaders" have been running the country. What is the point in blaming the Brits now? They came up with a system which worked perfectly well (for them) and kept the country moving. It is now becoming debatable whether this so called "freedom struggle" etc. was just a drama through which the Brits handed over power to Indians who were Britishers in brown skin. If we Indians as a society cannot take charge of things and improve our own governance mechanism, we will continue to be in such a mess. The US etc were also British colonies. But they kicked them out and designed & developed a system which worked perfectly for them.

nachiket wrote:As for lawyers "helping" rape accused, they are entitled to a lawyer to defend them in our justice system, which is no different from any justice system anywhere else. The standard of evidence needed in rape and murder cases is also similar to other countries.

My dear sir, rape trials continue for years together. For how long can prosecution keep on motivating/pestering of witnesses etc to appear before the court and give statements? The victim herself will have to repeat her sad story multiple times before the court. It is easy to pontificate and blame every one else. But there is a limit to what the police can do in such a judicial system. Sister Abhaya murder case was a case which happened in 1992 (yes, nearly 27 years back!). And it is now that CBI is actually putting up its case in what would be just a Sessions Court. And it now has the job of motivating the prosecution witnesses to drop all of their current work and give statements in court. Many of these people who were young and idealestic 27 years back have now moved on with life and turned hostile witnesses.

Kati wrote:Why is the public in general is so much supportive of the alleged encounter?
It's because the public have very little faith in the justice system. Too many criminals get out on bail, and commit more crimes.

The public in general is happy because they *feel* that justice has been quickly meted out. Remember; police force in India is blamed for pretty much every thing. But here they have been treated as saviours by the common people for a change. Which means that at least in such cases, people have more faith in the police than the judiciary. The people have come to realise that judicial system in India is slow, and at times very rich people friendly. The current judicial process is in India, in my humble opinion is in no way helping today's India and Indian society.

This is not good. We dont want India to become Philippines. We do not have the capacity to finish anything in 1 week, let alone cases where there might be doubt. This will be another severe sword hanging on the heads of many innocent males.
I get the anger, and I support the Hyderabad encounter if there was no doubt, but let us treat that as an impetus to improve the judicial process- not to make the whole system of vigilante justice.

For long time, the ecosystem that strives on 498A has been wanting to turn rape cases into similar cash cow. By default, pretty much all Hindu divorce cases in India start with the template of domestic violence, dowry, rape charges. Then add cases like Kathua. Hindu voters who need to be vigilant and ask themselves who in the end gets prosecuted by the system while who doesn't or has easier access to big time secular lawyers for free.

Refrain from broadcasting content which may instigate violence

The government on Friday issued an advisory asking news channels to refrain from broadcasting content which is
"likely to instigate violence or which promotes anti-national attitudes", a second such communication in less than 10 days.

Which brings me to something I have wanted to ask for a long time. Why do Indian Navy aphsars wear the White&White uniforms? I think they look utterly silly in those, imitating silly British. Good thing they don't wear the matador costumes of the Spanish Navy. A modern technically expert and thoughtful Navy should dress sensibly, hain?

I wonder how many countless others have got such dual aadhar cards, voter ids and other vital Indian national documents and so very conveniently, one identity is Hindu and the other is muslim.

We not only need a CAA but also an NRC, ASAP.

one doesn't even want to speculate on the original nationality or religion of this man :mrgreen:

Man with two Aadhaar cards and two voter IDs found in Odisha's Jajpur

Bitu Biswas, son of Aviram Biswas, has two identities, one as a resident of the Jajpur town and another in West Bengal.


22nd December 2019


JAIPUR: A curious case of a person with two identities has come to fore in Jajpur Road. As per an FIR lodged by the coordinator of Vyasanagar unit of Bajrang Dal Sushil Kumar Mallick with Jajpur Road police, Bitu Biswas, son of Aviram Biswas, has two identities, one as a resident of the town and another in West Bengal.

Bitu has been staying in Jajpur Road and has a travel business. He had married a Hindu woman before Bhadrak Notary Public two years back and brought a motorcycle under the name. On the other hand, he allegedly has Aadhaar and voter id cards in the name of Soleman Shaik, son of Abdul Salam in Murshidabad, West Bengal. He has even brought an SUV under the name in the neighbouring State and is married to a woman from Murshidabad.

“The incident, prima facie, implies that a single person has been impersonating under two different names in two locations,” stated the FIR. The police have registered a case and started investigation into the matter. “We will probe how a man has two different names in two different locations and the intent behind it,” said a senior police officer.

Saw this on the mozilla homepage
https://foundation.mozilla.org/en/campaigns/india-intermediary-liability-campaign/?utm_source=desktop-snippet&utm_medium=snippet&utm_campaign=mofo-india-petition&utm_term=22207&utm_content=REL
Right now the government of India is trying to quietly (and swiftly) pass rules that could change the way that the internet is governed. This move is intended to cut down on misinformation and harmful content, but as it stands now these laws would increase censorship and surveillance while putting civil society organisations and small businesses at risk

We urge you to immediately release the most recent drafts of proposed amendments to change India’s intermediary liability rules.

The pdf
https://blog.mozilla.org/netpolicy/files/2019/01/Letter-to-Indian-MEITY-on-proposed-intermediary-liability-rules.pdf
First,​ under the new rules, all online intermediaries are required to “proactively” purge their platforms of"unlawful" content or else potentially face liability for the actions and postings of their users.
Second, ​this proposal would significantly expand surveillance requirements on internet services. This isboth through the requirement to monitor the postings of all users as well as the specific direction tohandover information about “senders and receivers” of content to the government.Third,​ the term "intermediaries" is defined in an extraordinarily broad way that is likely to causeunintended harm. These rules apply indiscriminately to all intermediaries, sweeping up online repositoriesof knowledge, browsers, operating systems, and countless other kinds of internet companies andorganizations into its scope.

Fourth,​ the proposed rules put a blunt requirement on any service with more than 5 million users in Indiato incorporate in the country. This is a major operational obligation being imposed on a substantialnumber of global businesses and websites, without justification for this standard, and without a timeperiod for compliance. This raises fears of international companies, services, and nonprofits being forcedto close themselves off to Indian users, while also deterring potential market expansion of new playersinto India. Less diversity of services means less choices for users, harming the vibrancy of the Indiandigital ecosystem.

Have a question, mods - feel free to shift it to relevant threads if this one is not appropriate, what exactly is the actual Muslim population in India in 2019 ? Maybe their population right now is close to 30-ish in percentages rather than in the 20s ? How would one know in the absence of any credible raw data source ? Is NRC the last play and 2024 elections will be the last gen elections where "Hindu vote" still matters ?

Note that 3rd party sources (pew, world population review & even Joshua Project) still say there are only 13.4% muslims & ~2% christians, but this is based on data taken way back in 2001: http://censusindia.gov.in/Census_And_You/religion.aspx

Here is the religious demographics for India in 2011. The proportion of Muslims was 14.2%. Christians are at ~2% and are understated a bit - by ~2%, but let us not blow up the numbers. Percentages in a massive country like India don't change by more than 1-2% in a decade.

Why endangered India has few well-wishers abroad



Why endangered India has few well-wishers abroad

India has entered the stage of a quasi-civil war. It is a blunt warning to the incumbent government that it will not be allowed to govern, regardless of the mandate promised in its election manifesto that it is seeking to implement.

Gautam Sen,
26-12-2019.

The nationwide outcry over the perfectly reasonable and measured legislative programme pertaining to the NRC and the CAA has revealed starkly what some already know. India has very few friends abroad and a significant number of Indian citizens, of all religious backgrounds, would be ready to betray it without a second thought. These are the people who will create internal disorder to distract India’s security apparatus, presumably on cue, should it face a dire challenge along its borders and find itself struggling. They are also, alarmingly, able to mobilise a not insignificant segment of the population, either paid or uninformed, to vent their rage against the government and authorities for grievances that may have nothing to do with the issue hand, as in the case of the CAA and NRC. Of course, the NRC hasn’t even been framed yet though rage is being vented over it, echoed maliciously by the Congress President with little grasp over issues affecting the country she had once remotely usurped with catastrophic consequences.

The ghastly Godhra killings were an earlier example of India’s internal enemies being mobilised by its adversaries. Pakistan sponsored murder and mayhem inside India by getting its assets within it to undertake an arson attack against the bogeys of the Sabarmati Express. It compromised India’s military mobilisation under operation Parakram, the reaction to the attempt to decapitate its entire national parliamentary leadership; a casus belli if there was ever one. More remarkable, in many respects, was Pakistan’s apparent ability to incite continuing protest in India against CM Modi for a whole decade, in an attempt to derail the career of someone who represented national renewal. One British-Indian university academic, handsomely funded by India’s MEA itself and host to senior officials of the ministry, wrote in the utterly partisan Financial Times, denouncing India’s ‘military adventurism and belligerence towards Pakistan’. He remains an honoured guest at India’s High Commission in London!

The ongoing violent protest highlights the graphic reality that few are willing to recognise and it is also unlikely to prompt the appropriate conclusions. Self-satisfaction, complacency and boundless confidence at India’s economic gains since the early 1990s will obscure the dark reality of its dire predicament. The attempt to clarify the basis of Indian citizenship and define its porous borders were immediately perceived as an assertion of its nationhood that was intolerable to a whole array of adversaries. They had long felt comfortable with a soft state whose vitals were being gradually being eaten away from within, as a prelude to a final denouement of the Indian Union. Domestic armed groups, in various guises, separatist regional movements and demographic transformation of its border regions, all with some degree of foreign involvement, was advancing towards the kind of crisis its myriad protagonists are now demonstrating in the streets of Indian cities.

This gradual dissolution of the India Union has been occurring on many fronts, undertaken by an alliance of the church and assorted Jihadis, who hope to settle with each other after the principal nuisance, the Hindu majority, has been disempowered. The models are the Northeast, West Bengal and Kerala. The Northeast states legally curtails the rights of Indians citizens, deemed outsiders, within its territory and humiliatingly refused to allow some ashes of the late Atal Behari Vajpayee to be immersed in a local river; a church sponsored monumental insult that was, as usual, swallowed without demur. Much of the region was originally gifted to the church by the ever-generous Jawaharlal Nehru, anxious to remain a beacon of hope and humanity in the eyes of the West. The West Bengal phenomenon is to intimidate the local Hindu population by ensuring the election of an outrageously partisan and thoroughly criminal political party. Of course, the backdrop to this outcome was more than a century of Anglicised mis-education that created a profoundly déraciné estrangement of Bengalis from the Indian mainstream, including their own greatest saints and thinkers. It was, in turn, followed by exposure to a particularly virulent Leftist mutant of the cancer that completed the goal of sowing utter confusion and institutionalised self-hatred. A further intermediate alternative for the quislings is to emplace a government that will do the bidding of church fathers and mullahs, as in Kerala, while local Hindus remain preoccupied with ancient jealousies.

These fissures within Indian society have long been known to seasoned foreign predators who have intervened on many levels to take advantage to further their nefarious plans to seize various pieces of sovereign Indian real estate. It is this conspiracy that the NRC and CAB appeared to challenge and constituted the final straw that broke the foreign camel’s back. The adversaries perceived an opportunity to strike, without having to watch and wait for Modi Sarkar’s demise for some other mundane reason, which is how Vajpayee’s NDA I perished because onions prices had increased. Such absurd priorities of the Hindu electorate amply explain why the people of India have been repeatedly subjected to prolonged subjugation by invaders. Following the departure of NDA-I, Indians replaced their perfectly decent government with robber barons who began accelerating the liquidation of the India Union through aggressive evangelist conversion, facilitating Jihadi incursions and the wrecking of the economy through plunder. Once the subsequent attempt was made by the NDA-2 to define who is an Indian and, as a corollary, India’s borders through the CAA, the criminal fraternity found the challenge to their nefarious goals, which had advanced precipitously under their foreign-born leader, intolerable.

All local assets controlled from abroad were swiftly activated, while a chorus of the foreign media engaged in a shrill cry of censure though without being able to substantiate what great wrongs had been committed. India academic specialists abroad, Western and of Indian-origin, its most insidious and venal enemies, joined the chorus to provide legitimacy for rioting and violence, effectively espousing the Jihadi war cry of ‘Islam in danger’. There can be no doubt that significant funds have been flowing into India in recent weeks to incite protest and finance dissenters. Few seem aware how widespread is the bribing of so-called journalists, activists and pseudo academics to serve the purposes of foreign adversaries of India. All it takes to avoid the perils of the hawala route is to use an international credit or debit card whose pre-set spending limit can be settled abroad. Recently, I met an Indian human rights and social activist who was being inexplicably funded on a tour by Britain’s major media dissimulator and fraudster. Another, who seemed perfectly trustworthy at first, turned out to be in the pay of industrialists and engaged in promoting their interests while feigning nationalist inclinations on the Internet.

A huge hole in the heart of the civilisation of Indica is the absence of an elite, with a steely cold and unsentimental cast of mind and intellectual prowess, willing to render service to it against destructive forces militating against its wellbeing and survival. On the contrary, a significant swathe of the country seems mired in parochial regional and other multifarious prejudices and loyalties that frequently guaranteed past defeats in the face of the most dangerous invading enemies. Again, and again too many of India’s people have chosen eventual desolation and enslavement over the rational inclination to cooperate with each other and, at least, postpone petty local squabbles when faced with an immediate common enemy. At this momentous time of national self-assertion and the defining of its basic identity as a people, a large number of the highly educated and extremely privileged Indians, across the globe, are shrieking aloud for the despoliation of the country. Such is the sickness of the soul they are not even bothering to seriously assess the veracity of the accusations that would supposedly justify India’s effective self-immolation.

The people and leaders of the Indian polity and non-existent intelligentsia class are also failing abysmally to tackle the near-universal hostile narrative about their nation that constantly calls for its demise. It seems clear from the choices of its leaders that they themselves don’t even understand the nature and scale of the problem, leave alone show the capacity to organise to combat it. The most tragic aspect of the situation is that some of the most vocal déraciné citizens of India, who are denouncing it, refuse to look to examples of how other nation’s actually control their own narrative and destiny. They decline any comment on China’s unforgiving demonstration how it can be done, without ceremony and with ruthless self-assertion. China has reasserted complete control over its own historical narrative, which flows from researchers in its own universities. Outsiders are excluded and denied access if they fail to toe the official line, which is, in fact, under the jurisdiction of the state authorities. A major sympathetic study of China notes the improbability of the widely held conviction in China that a park in China once adorned a notice forbidding the entry of dogs and Chinese, but hesitated to dismiss it though he found no evidence for what was likely to be an ‘urban legend’.

An accident of fate, though somewhat predictable in retrospect, has caught the nationalist government led by Narendra Modi in a trap. A whole multitude of those increasingly unsettled by a succession of political victories of the forces of national unity suddenly found an opportunity to launch a spiteful counterattack. Their fortuitous ability to motivate domestic unrest and the liberal inflow of foreign lucre to fund it has caught the government off guard. The decisive measures of the Modi government to defend the national interest by launching raids across the border, on the ground and from the air, in response to a series of the most outrageous assaults on India, from the repeated attacks on Mumbai, since 1993 to the attempt to decapitate India’s entire political leadership in 2001 and so many others, were being answered. They were followed by legislative changes on triple talaq that constituted a signal that egregious human rights violations would no longer be tolerated merely because they were asserted by a truculent minority, forever ready to threaten violence. Then, the tectonic historic Ayodhya verdict. And followed subsequently by the enormously important CAA and the prospect of a nationwide NRC. The deeply compromised opposition parties, clearly connected to foreign adversaries in contemporary India and other local assets of foreign powers, have risen to the challenge. India has entered the stage of a quasi-civil war. It is a blunt warning to the incumbent government that it will not be allowed to govern, regardless of the mandate promised in its election manifesto that it is seeking to implement. The scent of blood has prompted frenzy among the adversarial political piranhas and sharks while the poisonous black mambas and cobras of the media hiss in joy. It is now incumbent on as many Indians as possible to take to the streets, in a massive show of force to defend their government. This is the moment when selfless courage and readiness are required to make sacrifices to defend the Indian Constitution, the integrity of the nation and the civilisation of Indica against foreign foes and their assets within India. These are the so-called Left in criminal university networks of alleged students, their international allies, the evangelists and Jihadis. This is indeed the moment of truth and all self-respecting Indians must be determined to prevail, at any cost.

Iranian national held in Raxaul of Bihar's East Champaran district without visa
Updated Dec 30, 2019 | 00:16 IST | PTI
The immigration officials recovered an Iranian passport and a UNHCR card from Akbari, who is a resident of Tehran, he said.

He refused to divulge further information about himself, saying his Guru has commanded him not to talk about the past, the officer said. After his interrogation by officials of various agencies, Akbari was handed over to the Raxaul police, the immigration officer added.

adjacent to Bellandur lake I have seen with my own eyes. From a coconut grove next to Sobha properties, it went to a collection of shanties almost overnight.

Sirji, how does one disprove their nationality once they have ration, and adhaar cards. At least 10% of them are employed by Baba Siddique and associates.

it appears that the bangladeshis speak bengali with a different and identifiable characteristic that can be picked up by a trained ear. if they do not pass this filter, then they get picked up. If they do, then other techniques are used to probe further like memories and geography of the places that they claim to have lived in or schooled in with details of neighbors, friends etc

These people generally cluster together in familiar groups or family units for safety and security and corroborating information from other members are matched.

their aadhar and ration cards will not stand the scrutiny of supporting and background information if these cards were to undergo a deep background check.

All in all, it appears to be a fairly lengthy process that has been tried and refined over time.

like seelampur in dilli and many other easily identified places in other cities and two/three tier towns etc

They never expected to be dealt with like this because their sponsors assured them of long term safety.

The beedi govt is caught in a bear trap with their lies and obfuscations over the years being publicly exposed.

in the short to medium term, relations between the two countries will be hit significantly.

All these are well know to even ordinary citizens with who have theirs eyes and ears open - I refuse to believe that the is either government is not aware of it or not able to enforce the the laws as they exist. They simply don't care or are profiting in some way from it. Let them first deport at least the 13K identified, before expecting 1Cr residents of Bengaluru to line up to prove their their citizenship.

One interesting thing is most of the BD illegals have fake aadhar, voter id cards from Bengal.
They pay 150 rupees for the id cards.
And their agents proviso is they have to come back for elections to vote.


I used to think its a Jihadidi vote bank but now we have proof.
