Modi: No freedom for Kashmiris

On October 29, Indian prime minister Narendra Modi slammed opposition Congress Party over demanding greater autonomy for Muslim-majority Kashmir state occupied by India since 1948.

Modi accused Congress of shamelessly lending its voice for Kashmir Azadi (Freedom), a demand spoken by Pakistan.

It seems, Modi was imitating his role model Netanyahu who has claimed that Syrian Golan Heights occupied by Israel since 1967 is part of Israel forever. As Netanyahu refuses to have dialogues with Hamas to resolve the Israel’s occupation of PA territories – same way Modi refuses to talk to Islamabad to have plebiscite in Jammu and Kashmir valley as per UN Security Council’s Resolution 47 – signed by both India and Pakistan governments on April 21, 1948.

Modi was addressing a meeting of his ruling BJP workers. “All of a sudden, those who were in power till yesterday, have taken a U-turn. Shamelessly, they’re making a statement and lending their voice for Kashmir’s Azadi (freedom),” Modi said.

Indian occupied state of Jammu and Kashmir (population 3.6 million), is the only so-called “Indian state” with Muslim-majority (70%). To control Muslims’ resistance to Hindu occupation of the valley, India maintains a 700,000 army and security force in the valley which has been condemned over summary killing, rapping and using Muslim youth as shield by Western human rights groups and Amnesty International.

On August 10, 1948, The Times, London reported that 237,000 Muslims were massacred in the princely state of Jammu and Kashmir by the Indian paramilitary forces and local Hindu militants since the creation of Hindu-majority Indian state by the British Raj on August 15, 1947.

During the last 25 years every Muslim Kashmiri family has suffered some of the indignity, brutality and cruelty of the Indian Security Forces as it has as it has ethnically- cleansed about 150,000 Muslim kids, youth and adults. The Indian army and military police are protected by the Armed Forces Special Powers Act which gives them a license to commit any crime without arrest or prosecution.

Indian propaganda of being the largest democracy in the world is as much a myth as the Jew Holocaust.

Last year, America’s Jewish philosopher Norman Chomsky in an interview compared Indian occupied Kashmir with Israel’s occupied Palestine.

India’s Hindu leaders know that if a plebiscite (referendum) is ever held – the great majority of Kashmiris would vote to join Pakistan or for an independent state of Kashmir – but not to join India.

Earlier this month, BJP veteran leader Yashwant Sinha admitted the reality on ground by saying: India has lost Jammu and Kashmir valley emotionally.

Indian author: Hindu women live in a war zone forever

Since the 9/11 false flag pro-Israel Western White racist politicians, academics and media have been waging a crusade against Muslims made refugees as result of the US and Europe’s proxy wars in Muslim world.

The United Nations Refugee Agency reports that women and children make 80% of refugees worldwide – many of whom end up in sex industry, forced labor or other illegal activities to survive.

Indian Bengali Hindu author of 24 books and film-critic Shoma A. Chatterji in her recent article, entitled, “I Am A Refugee: Aborted, Stalked, Raped, Abused – As I Have No Home to Call My Own.”

An Indian girl does not need to “escape” from her own “country” for “political, religious or economic reasons” or because of a “war.” Because the parameters and the qualifying features are not the same. “Forced displacement” or “forced migration” perhaps would suit the situation better,” says Chatterji.

If I am female, the family forces her to abort me. Two ‘women’ across two generations are locked in a war situation – the one conceived fights a war to be born, the mother fights a war with her body to stop me from being born. My mother’s womb is a war-zone for me. Her own body is a war zone for her .If they are forced to skirt an abortion, they will still kill me, by giving me the extract of the poisonous dhatura flower – a common practice in Tamil Nadu despite laws banning it. There are other practices in other regions of the country with different names but with the same purpose – elimination,” adds Chatterji.

I am a refugee in a public place. When I step out of the house after sunset, I might be stalked, molested, groped, teased, assaulted, raped, kidnapped, and murdered. If I work at an office, my vertical rise in my career might demand a compromise with my boss on sexual favours. If I do not compromise, I might be sexually harassed or thrown out of my job. If I rise without compromise, no one will believe I did. The society is a war-zone for me that constantly forces me to seek refuge in solidarity through candle-light marches when another refugee like me dies, or, by resorting to the legal and judicial machinery without realising that it is as patriarchal as the rest of the world I belong to and am seeking escape from,” says Chatterji.

While ruling BJP and other Hindu fascists are demonizing Muslims over Triple talaq issue – no Hindu wants to marry over 34 million Hindu widows in India (watch a video below). They’re also forbidden to marry non-Hindus. So much so, Indian prime minister Narendra Modi refuse to live with his child wife.

Indian author Gita Aravamudan in her 2007 book, Disappearing Daughters, claims that over one million un-born female babies are killed each year by Hindu parents in India through abortion or by other methods. Foreword of the book is written by former president of India and Father of Hindu nuclear Bomb, Dr. A.P.J Abul Kalam.

Outside India, Israel is the worst place to be a woman. Catholic French priest Roland de Vaux (died 1971) wrote: “The social and legal position of an Israelite wife was inferior to the position a wife occupied in other faiths. All Biblical texts show that Israelite wanted mainly sons to perpetuate the family line and fortune, and preserve the ancestral inheritance. A husband could divorce his wife; women on the other hand, couldn’t ask for divorce. She called her husband adon or lord. The wife doesn’t inherit from her husband, nor daughters from their father, except when there is no male heir. A vow made by a girl or married woman, needs to be valid, the consent of the father or husband, and if this consent is withheld, the vow is null and void. A man has the right to sell his daughter. Women were excluded from the succession.”

Narendra Modi declare war on Campuses

It seem, Indian prime minister Narendra Modi is a good student of Nazi and Zionist propaganda techniques. After economic failure, regional isolation and rising anti-government student movement Modi has declared open war at Universities to kill the freedom of speech.

On Monday, hundreds of students held a protest rally in the Indian occupied Kashmir over the arrest of Alaa Fazili, a PhD student at University of Kashmir.

India is using the national investigation agency (NIA) as a new weapon of war to intimidate and silence those who are speaking against the brutalities of forces. Such tactics have not worked in past and they will not work now,” said a student protester.

The very first action by the Modi government when it came to power was against student a Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) where the full might of the state was evident in trying to crack down the criticism of Modi government’s Hindu extremist policy against minorities. Accompanied by violence, even at the Patiala courts where lawyers beat up students and journalists. The effort was to break the resistance and ensure virtual takeover of the campus by the BJP student wing, ABVP,” said editorial at The Citizen on September 24, 2017.

Last year, protesters at the JNU burned an effigy of Narendra Modi and other BJP leaders to mark the victory of truth over falsehood.

We celebrated the victory of truth over falsehood in a modern and democratic country by burning effigies. For us Modi and RSS are symbol of untruth,” said Sunny Dhiman, a member of the NSUI.

Since then anti-government protests have spread to 18 other campuses. Hindu extremist government officials and pro-Modi press is calling everyone traitor who dare to criticize police brutality against students.

The opposition and critics say the government is trying to shift public attention from its failure. The economy is showing no signs of a great turnaround, as many had expected with Narendra Modi coming to power. Despite historic low prices of fuel, of which India is a net importer, the GDP growth rate has increased only marginally. The stock markets have fallen to the levels that prevailed under the previous government, which was battling high inflation and low growth. The Modi government’s “Make in India” campaign has not resulted in the hoped-for manufacturing revolution,” wrote Shivam Vij, an Indian journalist.

 

Rana Ayyub: Indian author and PM Modi

On August 16, 2017, India’s award-wining Muslim female investigative journalist and author Rana Ayyub, 33, was presented with the Courage in Journalism Award by the Vancouver-based Radical Desi monthly news magazine founded by a Sikh journalist Gurpreet Singh.

Indian journalist and author of 2016 investigative book, Gujarat Files, Rana Ayyub exposing the Indian government’s cover-up of 2002 Muslim massacre in Gujarat state under the premiership of the current Indian prime minister Narendra Modi also known as Butcher of Gujarat, which resulted in murder of more than 2,000 Muslim men, women ad children while Hindu fascists rapped hundreds of Muslim girls and women (watch video below).

In order to get to bottom of the massacre plot, Rana Ayyub talked to leaders of the BJP, RSS, VHP and other anti-Muslim Hindu extremist groups and attended their meetings posed as an upper-class Brahmin American filmmaker Maithili Tyagi with a hidden microphone under her western dress. At that time she was working as a journalist for Indian magazine Tehelka. She even met Narendra Modi who was leader of RSS then. Mahatma Gandhi’s killer Nathuram Vinayak Godse was a member of RSS.

The Tehelka editors under Hindutva pressure refused to publish her investigative report which claimed that Gujarat state government headed by Modi blamed the train deaths on Muslim extremists, but that was never proven. According to Ayyub, police killed Muslim men in staged “encounters”, and later described them as jihadi extremists.

Rana Ayyub resigned from Tehelka in protest and tried to published a book on her investigative report but no Indian publisher would take the risk. In the end, she published it by herself. The book’s forward is written by retired Indian Supreme Court justice B.N. Srikrishna – and 50,000 of its copies have been sold so far.

Because of her book implicating Modi in the 2002 massacre, Rana Ayyub is unable to find a full-time job in journalism. She has received abusive and physical threats from rabid followers of the Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party. On April 6, 2017 Rana Ayyub, took to Twitter to name and shame a Hindu who had sent her abusive messages with sexual overtones on Facebook.

In October 2016, Rana Ayyub who was the chief speaker at an event organised by the Indian Association of Bihar and Jharkhand (IABJ) in Doha, Qatar, was told by the organisers that they were instructed by Indian ambassador to either cancel the event or drop her from the list of speakers. Along with Ayyub, Kashif-Ul-Huda, founder of the news website Two Circles.net, was also supposed to speak at the same event that was planned as a commemorative programme celebrating the 85th birth anniversary of former Indian president and Father of the Hindu nuclear Bomb, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.

Last month, the Vancouver temple (Gurdwara) where Narendra Modi spoke in 2015, denied an opportunity to Rana Ayyub to address the congregation under Indian government pressure.

Last year, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau made fun of Narendra Modi by saying his cabinet has more Sikh ministers (4) than Narendra Modi’s (2).

India: Guru’s rape trail cost 100 lives

On Friday, in the town of Panchkula (Haryana, India), Hindu mobs set fire to government buildings and attacked police and TV journalists, smashing windshields of 200 cars, vans and buses while breaking broadcast equipment after a court announced Guru Singh Ji-Insan also known GRR, guilty of rapping two of his young Hindu female disciples. The authorizes imposed curfew after the religious riots left more 100 dead and 200 injured (watch video below).

Thousands of men and women, some with children and babies came to support their Guruji. The Hindu sect claims to have 60 million members. It promotes vegetarianism and campaigns against drug addiction.

Initially a Congress party supporter, Gurmeet Ram Singh but campaigned for the ruling BJP party and other Hindu extremist groups in 2014 with the sect backing the Saffron Party in that year’s Lok Sabha and Haryana assembly elections.

Guru Singhji has cultivated a larger than life image in the region, largely because of the complete immunity and encouragement given to him by the political class. It is no secret that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party embraced this guru, seeking his support and fanning his Hindu extremism during the state elections even as he moved from a ‘guru’ to a rock star with albums and movies under his belt.

Guruji’s sexual exploitation became known when on September 25, 2002, Chandigarh-based Punjabi newspaper Desh Sewak published a letter written by a girl repeatedly rapped by GRR, addressed to then Congress party Indian prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee in 2002. In the letter she claimed that GRR kept captive and rapped many girls with the threat of killing their parents if they dared to talk to police or their friends.

Indian intellectuals are so fed-up with BJP’s Hindutva fascism that former Indian Supreme Court Justice Markandey Katju (a Kashmiri Brahmin) said last year in public that the “only way to save India is a revolution with politicians hung or shot.” The situation in India under Modi is not much different in United States under Trump administration.

On August 26, 2017, India’s Lt. Gen. (ret) P.C. Katoch’s article, entitled, Empire of a Rapist and Collusion of the State: 12 Questions, is worth reading. Katoch accuses the central and provincial governments and the law enforcement agencies of collaborating with the pro-GRR mob.

In India, a woman is rapped every 30 seconds while in United States, a woman is raped every 70 seconds.

India: The ‘untouchable’ who got lucky

A young Sujatha during her activism days in India.India is home to 230 million untouchable (low-caste) Hindus. Another 30 million live around the world – many of them converted to Islam and Christianity to escape Hindu caste system. Late Dr. B.R. Ambedkar is quoted saying: Hinduism is not a religion; it is a disease.

Last month, Indian-American Sujatha Gidla, published her memoir, Ants Among Elephants: An Untouchable Family and the Making of Modern India.

In her stirring memoir, Gidla, who is the first woman conductor of the New York subway, chronicles how her family challenged the Indian repressive social system through education, largely through converting to Christianity and her move to the United States.

Gidla was born in a small town of Khazipet in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh to a lower-middle class family. She was lucky her parents were educated and could afford to send her to school.

Outcastes, a lot of times think that education is the only way out. That’s how we got educated,” she said.

For those belonging to the lower caste in India, converting to another religion is seen as the only way out from the dungeons of Hindu caste system.

I set out to write the book only to find my family’s conversion to Christianity. But I ended up writing a lot about my uncle and what he did like confronting police, hiding comrades. This could make a very good Hollywood movie, except they were Maoists (communists),” Gidla said.

Indian journalist Suraj Yengde compared Hindu ‘untouchables’ to Jews in the Christian Europe (The Indian Express, January 20, 2016) which is not true as Jewish elites had always controlled European economy, media and had collaborated with European fascists such as Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

Maybe, it’s time for the Indian government to build a Dalit Museum in New Delhi as the British taxpayers are building a new Holocaust Museum for the organized Jewry in London.

70 years ago India got its independence from British Crown. The country spends more money (US$53.5 billion) on its army to bully its neighbors than erasing poverty and religious racism among its citizens.

While 56% of Indian population lives below poverty line, and 18.35 million Indians live in ‘modern slavery’ – India ranks world’s top arms importer.

US slams India on its Independence Day

On August 15, 2017 while the Indian government of Narendra Modi and its Hindu extremist allies were celebrating country’s 70th birthday, its top ally United States blasted New Delhi of committing heinous religious policies against its minorities especially 150 million-strong Muslim minority.

On August 15, US secretary of state, Rex Tillerson unveiled the US state department’s 2016 International Religious Freedom Report.

Authorities frequently did not prosecute members of vigilante “cow protection” groups who attacked alleged smugglers, consumers, or traders of beef, usually Muslims, despite an increase in attacks compared to previous years. Courts also issued decisions on several long-standing cases related to religiously motivated violence and riots. Christian and Muslim activists stated the government was not doing enough to protect them against religiously motivated attacks. The government filed a Supreme Court petition challenging the minority status of Muslim educational institutions, which affords the institutions independence in hiring and curriculum decisions. Some nationalist political leaders advocated for the country to be declared a Hindu state,” the report said.

There were reports of religiously motivated killings, assaults, riots, discrimination, vandalism, and actions restricting the right of individuals to practice their religious beliefs and proselytize. There was an increase in violent incidents by cow protection groups against mostly Muslim victims, including killings, mob violence, assaults, and intimidation. Hindus threatened and assaulted Muslims and Christians and destroyed their property. According to the Evangelical Fellowship of India (EFI), there were more than 300 incidents of abuse targeting Christians during the year, compared with 177 in 2015. Incidents included assaults on missionaries, forced conversions of non-Hindus, and attacks on churches, schools, and private property. Administrators at some Muslim and Christian schools and graveyards denied their facilities to interreligious couples or their children. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) reported 751 conflicts between religious communities, which resulted in 97 deaths and 2,264 injuries in 2015,” the report noted.

The report rapped India’s Hindu extremists who are bent on making cow slaughter by Muslims and Hindu Dalit criminals like Holocaust deniers.

Authorities often failed to prosecute violence by cow protection groups against persons, mostly Muslims, suspected of slaughtering or illegally transporting cows or trading in or consuming beef,” noted the report.

Kolkata-born British writer Supriyo Chatterjee wrote on India’s birthday: “Today 15 August 70 years ago, India became independent. Here are some facts and numbers on India you don’t see.”

Here are some of those facts and figures:

  1. While country is home to 101 billionaire, 55% of country’s 1.1 population lives below the poverty line.
  2. India’s defence budget for 2017 is an estimated $53.5 billion. It is the world’s largest arms importer. It buys three times as much arms from the international market as Pakistan and China, its neighbors and rivals, accounting for 14% of all arms imports globally from 2009-2013. The USA is the largest provider (40%), followed by the Russians (30%) and the French (14%). Israel provides 4% of the imports but is growing in importance. India spends 7% of its budget on defense but only 2.4% of GDP on health and less than 3% on education.
  3. 200 million people go hungry in India.
  4. 1.3 million Indian children die a year before their first birthday. 1.6 million children die every year before age of 5. 43.5% of all children under-fives are underweight. Infant mortality rate is 46.07 deaths/1,000 live births. Almost half of children drop out of school before 15 years of age.
  5. Maternal mortality rates are 200 deaths/100,000 live births.
  6. Only 46.9% of the total 246.6 million households have toilet facilities. Of the rest, 3.2% use public toilets while 49.8% ease themselves in the open. 32% of the households use treated water for drinking and 17% still fetch drinking water from a source located more than 500 metres in rural areas or 100 metres in urban centers.
  7. Unemployment stands officially at 9.8%, but the real figure is much higher.
  8. More than 135,000 road accident deaths are reported every year, most of them being cyclists and pedestrians.

India-US artist Priti Gulati Cox in her blog post says: “India, you will be celebrating your 70th year of Independence from British rule on August 15. All over the country all of you will be remembering the fallen, hoisting flags, and singing songs of freedom. Meanwhile in Indian-administered Kashmir — the largest militarized zone in the world — the Indian state and its military and paramilitary forces will continue to carry on with their sustained human rights abuses aimed at the regions indigenous population.”
