Gorkhas want partition of Indian Bengal

The people of Muslim-majority Indian occupied Kashmir are not the only people seeking independence from Hindu fascism. Nepali Gorkha Hindus living in Indian West Bengal state have also been fighting for an independent Gorkhaland for decades just like the struggle for an independent Khalistan state in Indian Punjab in the 1980s and 1990s.

The current West Bengal government’s decision to impose Bengali language in all the schools from Class I-IX, has sparked a violent protest on Thursday in the Gorkha-majority Darjeeling. The army is called in to pacify the situation in the region.

The demand for Gorkhaland is based on ethnic identity of over 10 million Nepalis living in different parts of India. “We want a homeland for ourselves ­–­ for our own identity. Although we are bona fide Indian citizens, we are still called ‘Nepali’. To get rid of the stigma we feel it’s essential that we have our own state,” Amar Singh Rai, Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) leader said.

The chief minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee has threatened that she will not allow a second partition of Bengali land.

Subhas Ghising (died in March 2015), a former Indian soldier, led an independence movement for a separate Gorkhaland state in 1986 which resulted in the death 1,200 civilians, before signing an agreement on 22 August, 1988 with the central and state government for creation of the Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council (DGHC), an autonomous governing body for the hills. He chaired the DGHC till 2008. Ghising lived-in-exile from the hills after his GNLF was sidelined in early 2008 by the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha that spearheads the movement now.

The struggle for Gorkhaland began in 1905 when British colonial authority partitioned Muslim-majority Bengal state. Darjeeling was a part of the Rajshahi division, which became part of East Pakistan on August 14, 1947 – now Bangladesh.

In 1943 the British colonialist committed Bengali Holocaust through starvation which killed four million people – more than Nazis killed Jews in Europe during WWII.

“I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion. The famine was their own fault for breeding like rabbits,” said British prime minister Winston Churchill in 1943.

In 1952, The All India Gorkha League submitted a memorandum to the then Indian prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru demanding separation from West Bengal.

Since its independence from British Raj on August 15, 1947 – there are close to one hundred local resistance groups fighting against Hindu upper-class dominated Indian government. Most of these religious and ethnic minority resistance groups beget their violence from the rising Hindu religious terrorism based on racism. These groups operate in Assam (31), Nagaland (21), Meghalaya (5), and Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (34). Two of India’s prime ministers, Indira Gandhi and her son Rajiv Gandhi (d.1984) were assassinated by her Sikh bodyguards and a Tamil Hindu woman (here).

Holy Cow to become India’s ‘National Animal’!

On Wednesday, Rajasthan (India) single-judge High Court Justice Mahesh Chand Sharma, who retired the same day, ruled that cow should be declared India’s national animal and anyone who slaughter or eat beef should be thrown in jail.

In response to this Hindu food fascism, Thrithala MLA VT Balram announced that he has decided to start eating beef after 19 years.

I have been living without eating meat, fish or eggs since 1998. But now the time has come break it and uphold the right politics of food assertively,” Balram said, while posting a video of him eating beef with friends and fellow party workers.

Since Narendra Modi’s BJP came into power, Hindutva fascists have intensified their war on beef eater especially 160 million Muslim minority. On May 23, 2017, Modi government banned the sale of cows and buffaloes for slaughter through animal markets

The ruling BJP believes that cows should be protected, because they are considered holy by India’s majority Hindu population. Some 18 Indian states have already banned slaughter of cattle.

Ironically, India exports around US$5 billion worth of beef and buffalo meat annually, accounting for around 20pc of global ‘beef’ exports. India is also the second-largest exporter (here). India will also lose US$13 billion in global leather market.

The Dalit (untouchable Hindus), Muslims, Christians, Sikhs and Adivasi (tribal people) which make more than 45% on India’s 1.2 billion population  – mostly consume meat. According to some Hindu sources, India’s first prime minister and father of prime minister Indira Gandhi and grandfather of prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, a Kashmiri Brahmin, was a beef eaterIndia’s prime minister Morarji Desai had admitted in an interview that he drank a pint of his own urine each day.

Hindu historian D.N. Jha, retired professor form Delhi University has claimed that Hindu scriptures never banned eating beef and many of earlier Hindu religious leaders consumed beef and other meat products.

There is substantial evidence in ancient Indian texts which testify to the prevalence of the practice of beef eating for many centuries in ancient India. The practice gradually disappeared in those regions, which are now called the “cow belt.” But it has continued in many other parts of the country, especially Kerala and north eastern states. In Kerala, 72 communities eat beef and many of them are Hindus. So, I would not say that beef eating is incompatible with Hinduism. But, at the same time there are many Hindus who would not even touch beef or even meat or fish,” Jha said in an interview he gave to the Jewish Wall Street Journal in October 2015.

Bollywood actor: Use Arundhati Roy as ‘human shield’ in Kashmir

 

Paresh Rawal, Veteran Bollywood Hindu actor and MP belonging to Narendra Modi’s ruling BJP party provoked a twitter storm by suggesting that famous Indian author Arundhati Roy should be tied to a military jeep against the stone-throwers in Indian occupied Muslim majority state of Jammu and Kashmir.

Arundhati Roy has been subject of a smear campaign by Hindu extremists and Zionist Jews for her support for Kashmiris and Palestinians (here).

On April 9, 2017, Indian army Major Nitin Gogoi  tied a Kashmiri Muslim to his military jeep as human shield to protect himself from stone throwing Kashmiri youth (see photo at the top).

The state’s chief minister, Mehbooba Mufti, claimed that a First Information Report (FIR) was also lodged at a local police station against the army unit. She sought a detailed report from the state police.

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah tweeted: “A warning can be heard saying that stone pelters [in held Kashmir] will meet this fate. This requires an urgent inquiry and follow up now.”

In response to the social media condemnations, India’s Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi disapproved of growing criticism of a human shield the army used to thwart stone-pelting protesters in Indian-held Kashmir.

Indian army awarded Major Gogoi a medal for his bravery. I bet, Major Gogoi learned this act of bravery from Israel army which have even used 7-year-old Palestinian kid as human shield.

In June 2013, United Nations human rights body accused Israeli occupation forces of mistreating Palestinian children, including by torturing those in custody and using others as human shields.

Kashmir has seen unprecedented violence ever since the killing of top Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in July last year, in which more than 80 people were killed.

Modi government is contemplating to impose Governor rule in the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

Last year, US-based pro-Israel Brookings Institution in a report said that India blocked access to the internet in various regions to prevent demonstrations 22 times in the 12 months starting in July 2015, more often than Muslim-majority Syria, Pakistan and Turkey did put together.

India’s Adivasi girls turned into baby-making machines

As I posted earlier – Indian and Israeli ruling classes have many things in common in addition to their hatred toward Muslims. Both are known for racism against fellow Hindus and Jews.

Women have worst human rights in both Hinduism and Judaism. They’re exploited as sex object and slaves of the male population (here, here).

Early this month, Indian press reported that tens of thousands Adivasi (aboriginal aka tribal people) girls are being trafficked, traded, enslaved, rapped and made to conceive babies for adoption that fetch Rs. 100,000 – 400,000 per child.

Dr. Vasavi Kiro, former member of the Jharkhand State Commission for Women, wrote recenly: “After drugs and arms, human trafficking is the third largest profitable industry in the world, and Jharkhand happens to be the worst victim in India. Human trafficking, particularly that of minor tribal girls shipped out to be deployed as domestic helps in big cities, has been a decades-old phenomenon that no government has, for mysterious reasons, ever wanted to address. But recent rep­orts indicate that a second, more heinous level of exploitation has been attained. Many of the trafficked girls, according to reports, are impregnated and made to bear children so that these children could then be further sold off.”

According to the Indian Social Institute (ISI), roughly, 1.4 million girls have been lured out or trafficked from different states across India and engaged as dom­estic helps in New Delhi alone. 72.1 per cent of these girls remain unwed. But a large number of them become mothers. And within that, 70 per cent are below 18 years of age.

According to ISI, 77% of these exploited girls are Adivasi, 12% Dalit, 8% Other Backward Class, and 3% others. OBC makes 52% of India’s 1.2 billion population (here).

Indian tribal area has a population of 84 million – majority of them being of low-caste Hindus (watch a video below).

The Surrogacy trade was legalized in India in 2002. Since the it has become a US$400 million per year. According to the New Delhi-based Sama Resource Group for Women and Health estimates that nearly 50,000 people visit India annually seeking surrogate mothers, resulting in around 2,000 births per year — and providing livelihoods to thousands of poor and unskilled women.

The biggest problem is that in India there is no written law regarding surrogacy. Surrogacy is seen as a private contract between two willing parties,” said Rekha Aggarwal, a Supreme Court lawyer who specializes in adoption cases.

Israeli Jews are major buyers of surrogate babies from India and Nepal. It’s illegal for a Jewish woman to act as a surrogate mother in Israel.

India’s Jew Mother Teresa!

BD039616 (1)

Hindu majority India is home to several Mother Teresa. First was an Albanian-born Catholic Saint Mother Teresa (died 1997), who according to a study conducted by three Canadian academics, Dr. Serge Larivee (University of Montreal), Dr. Genevieve Chenard (University of Montreal), and Dr. Carole Senechal (University of Ottawa), was a fraud, and  that her beatification was orchestrated by an effective media campaign.

Then there is an Muslim Mother Teresa, Iranian-born Narges Kalbasi Ashtari who had to spend some time in an Indian jail.

On May 5, Manchester-born Jew, Dr. Jack Preger, 86, won the Philanthropist of the Year award last week for providing free medical care to poor Kolkata residents for over two decades. He became the first living non-Asian to receive the coveted award at London’s Park Lane Hilton presented by Bollywood veteran actor Sanjeev Bhaskar (see photo above). The event was attended by London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

After graduating in medicine in 1972, young Preger arrived in newly established Bangladesh to start his clinic. Preger learned both Urdu and Bangla languages from pro-Pakistan non-Bengalese interned in several refugee camp wishing to immigrate to Pakistan In 1979, he was expelled from Bangladesh for blowing whistle over human organ harvesting.

In 1980 Preger appeared in Kolkata (British colonists established the city in 1690 and called Calcutta), the capital city of Hindu Bangladesh in India. He joined Mother Teresa Foundation in Kolkata. It’s here when Preger converted to Catholicism. But, as they say, once you’re given birth by a Jewish woman – you’re always remain a Jew especially if you’re rich and famous. That’s why the UK’s Jewish Chronicle celebrated Dr. Preger’s ‘Jewish achievement’ on May 12, without mentioning his conversion to Christianity.

Ben Weich at JC claims that Preger wants to help Palestinians also. “As a Jew, I feel involved in what Israel does to these people. I stayed a number of times in East Jerusalem and travelled in the West Bank. The discriminatory regulations, the attacks by settlers I was told of when in the West Bank, the displacement of Bedouin from their grazing grounds and many other practices made me ashamed as an old member of Hashomer Hatzair (the Socialist-Zionist youth movement),” Preger told Weich in an interview.

Preger couldn’t control his Shylock-itch while working for Mother Teresa Foundation in Kolkata. After watching the huge corruption in the charity – he decided to create his own golden calf. He started a British NGO charity, Calcutta Rescue, based in Kolkata in 1980. It has now fundraising branches in The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Canada and the United States.

India rejects Turkey’s offer to mediate in Kashmir dispute

In an interview ahead of his first-ever visit to India, Turkish president Recep Tayip Erdogan made an offer to India to mediate talks between India and Pakistan over the disputed state of Jammu and Kashmir.

Narendra Modi government has rejected Erdogan’s offer – insisting that India wants to resolve the 70-year-old dispute bilaterally without a third party mediation. This is the same logic insisted by the successive Zionist regimes while refusing to talk to the elected government of Hamas.

On Tuesday, Islamabad rejected New Delhi’s proposal to resolve Kashmir dispute bilaterally, saying New Delhi has scuttled all opportunities for meaningful dialogue over the past two decades, and asserted it should take up on Turkish President’s offer for multilateral talks on Kashmir once and for all.

Nobody believes that thousands of young boys and girls, who have been agitating ceaselessly since July 2016, are terrorists. The Indian government has broken its own record of brutality in Indian Occupied Kashmir. Indian forces have blinded hundreds of Kashmiris, including children, and injured over 16,000 protesters with live ammunition, pellet guns and gas shells,” Sartaj Aziz foreign policy adviser to Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif said in a statement.

The statement pointed out that the people of IHK are “losing faith in Indian democracy”, citing low voter turn-out during the recently held by-polls in Srinagar as evidence.

On April 2017, Iranian ambassador in Islamabad Mehdi Honadoost in an interview offered Tehran’s mediation in the Jammu and Kashmir dispute. India is Iran’s second largest buyer (US$16 billion) after China (US$52 billion).

In early March, 2017, Trump administration too offered to mediate between Pakistan and India on the disputed Muslim-majority state of Jammu and Kashmir. India refused calling it a bilateral issue.

India is following Israeli tactics to change demographic situation in its occupied Jammu and Kashmir state. On May 18, 1993, Shimon Peres, then foreign minister visited India. He told his Indian counterpart: “India should not be afraid or hesitate to populate Kashmir with people from all over India. Only a demographic change in Kashmir can help India to claim it. The idea of a Muslim majority state living peacefully with a Hindu majority community is idiotic and this idea is nothing but anathema.”

India did implemented war-criminal’s advice. In August 1947, when British colonists withdrew from Indo-subcontinent, Jammu and Kashmir was a Muslim majority princely state. The Muslims at that time constituted 72.40% of the population and as per 2011 census they are 68.27%. The total population of Indian occupied Kashmir, at present, is 12,548,926.

Since anti-Muslim Narendra Modi, assumed power in 2014, India has intensified its plans to change the demographic composition of Jammu and Kashmir and convert the Muslim majority into a minority. In its manifesto and official statements, the BJP has openly announced that the special status to Jammu and Kashmir mandated by Articles 370 and 35A of the Indian constitution besides Article 6 of Indian Occupied Kashmir constitution would be done away with. The BJP says, albeit through several constitutional and legal frauds, India has already made Kashmir’s separate status just a façade.

Bhobiner Singh, former lieutenant-governor of Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Puducherry, wrote on May 3, 2017 that India will never succeed in solving Kashmir issue with military muscles.

India routinely accuses Pakistan of arming and training Kashmiri freedom fighters and the US has started accusing Russia of arming the Taliban which is a blanket name used to describe any group opposed to foreign occupation of Afghanistan. I hope that Russia and Pakistan take the cue and start doing what they are being accused of. The hegemons feel that only they have the right to play such dirty games. It is time to pay them back in the same coin. There’s no other way. If India could arm proxies against Pakistan, why is it taboo for us to arm Kashmiris fighting for their freedom? In a world bloodied by US-armed proxies, what’s wrong with Russia arming Afghans fighting foreign occupation? Given India’s provocative romance with the Dalai Lama, shouldn’t China support the groups fighting Indian repression in its north-east? In a world at war with no holds barred, why must only the good guys follow all the rules?,” said Jalees Hazir, a freelance columnist at The Nation on May 4, 2017.

India: Five children abducted every hour

File photo of parents of missing children at a rally in DelhiOn April 13, 2017, Reuters reported that according to Indian government’s Track Child portal 250,000 children were reported missing by their parents between January 2012 to March 2017 – that’s five children vanishing every hour in the so-called world’s largest democracy.

But campaigners say these figures are just the tip of the iceberg, as many cases are not registered by parents or the police, and the children dismissed as runaways. For example, on May 24, 2016, the Times of India reported a 84% rise in missing children during 2013-2015.

On December 8, 2011, the BBC News reported that 11 children go missing in India every hour – and only 4 of them are recovered by the law enforcement agencies.

Delhi-based Shakti Vahini anti-child trafficking organization says 70% of these missing children are sold into child labor or prostitution.

India has world’s largest child population – with more than 40% of its 1.2 billion citizens are below the age of 18.

India is a source, destination, and transit country for trafficking for many purposes such as commercial sexual exploitation. Majority of the trafficking is within the country but there are also a large number trafficked from Nepal and Bangladesh (here).

India’s 51% population lives under poverty level which has become a breeding ground for surrogacy trade especially for baby girls who are considered a liability among Hindu majority.
