What happened to the Hindus killed in Orissa?

June 3, 2019

What happened to the Hindus killed in Orissa?

The biased reporting of the mediaThe media reported about the killing of Hindu Sanyasi – Swami Lakshmanand and his disciples variously as follows:

Bhubaneswar (Orissa): In a sensational incident[1] Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati and four of his close aids have been killed in a grenade attack by the suspected Maoists at around 9 PM at Jalaspotta Ashram, in Tumudi Bandh area in the tribal dominated district of Kandhamal in Southern Orissa on Saturday night.

Kandhamal (Orissa)In the wake of widespread violence in Orissa, the National Commission of Minorities (NCM) on Tuesday sought a comprehensive report from the State Government over the fresh violence in the communally-sensitive tribal dominated Kandhamal following the killing of Swami Laxmananda Saraswati[2].  “NCM has sought entire details of the episode and asked the Naveen Patnaik led Government to explain how the problem started,” NCM Chairman Md Shafi Qureshi said in a statement[3].

Killed along with Swami are Hindus: On August 23rd night, the celebrations were going on the eve of Krishna’s birth day just like Christmas. at Laxmananda’s kanyashram at Tumudibandh, about 100 km from Phulbani, the district headquarters of Kandhmal district. The killed were as follows, though not revealed by the media:

  1. Swami Lakshmanananda.
  2. Two inmates of the ashram – ladies, one has been Sanyasi.
  3. Two devotees.

A group of nearly 30 armed came in vehicles and they reportedly thrown a grenade and also started firing with AK-47. While confirming the attack, police sources said the attackers used automatic weapons and bombs[4]. Thus, such a group of men could not have come all of sudden and therefore, the attack has been evidently planned one in eliminating the Swamiji.

I have copied the images from the following sites:

http://picasaweb.google.com/visakeobbsr/SwamiLaxmanandaSaroswati

I acknowledge for using these photos only for the purpose of pointing out that the media has been suppressing the facts of the suffering of Hindus in Secular India. Though it has been against all law, norms, code etc., the national and international media and other agencies have been doing .

The Police enquiry appears to be slacking and directionless: The media reports thatOrissa police are yet to start a thorough inquiry that will lead them to the 30-odd assailants. In the last four days, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has announced the setting up of a judicial inquiry commission to unravel the truth and sent two police IGs and two DIGs to Kandhamal. On Tuesday (26-08-2008), he sent an investigation team, headed by Crime Branch SP Yatindra Koyal, to Kandhamal to hunt down the killers. On Saturday night (23-08-2008) when Lakshmanananda Saraswati was killed, Orissa Director General of Police Gopal Chandra Nanda didn’t wait for a full inquiry before making a statement that Maoists were behind the incident. “From the automatic weapons used it looks like the handiwork of Maoists,” he said. But four days after the incident, the state Government has nothing to prove this claim though two persons were detained on the suspicion that they could have had a role in the killing. On Wednesday (27-08-2008), Inspector General of Police (Intelligence) Manmohan Praharaj sought to play down the Maoist angle and said the police were keeping all the options open. “Whatever evidence we have got is consistent with the Maoist stamp in the kind of operation they undertake. The assailants had left a note written on the letterhead of Vamsadhara Zonal Committee, signed by one Azad[5], and it is consistent with the Maoist methods,” said Praharaj. While the Chief Minister claimed that intensive raids and intelligence-based combing operations were being undertaken to apprehend the culprits, police admitted that the probe was heading nowhere. “We have interrogated people but had to let them go after finding little evidence,” said Praharaj. The Maoist theory has been junked by Sangh Parivar outfits, who accuse the local Christians to be the killers. “Someone had decided at some point of time that Lakshmanananda Saraswati had to be killed,” said a VHP leader.

Hindu-Christian clashes: The media, both national and international local and Catholic has been unanimous that the clashes had been between Hindus and Christians. Then, how is that the killed Hindus are not mentioned in the media? The over-enthusiastic Christian media grossly misinterprets the fact that a nun was burned alive, though the victim has been a Hindu woman only[6]. The woman, Rajani Majhi, was a Hindu and a student of Padampur Women’s College in Bargarh district, said Deputy Inspector General of Police (northern range) Y B Khurania. Her biological father Laxmi Prasad Mahakud and foster father Guchu Majhi are both Hindus. They are residents of Nuapada village under Jharbandh police jurisdiction in the district[7]. Again, the national and international print and electronic media have been publishing pictures / photos, as if only Christians have been attacked, affected and so on. The attacked, suffered and affected Hindus are totally suppressed.

It is not national shame, but shame for secularism, as it has been against Hindus: No doubt, Dr. Manmohan Sigh has been a well-learned person, but his utterance that the Orissa incidences have been “national shame” has been shame to his stature. That is why the international and national stooges have been emboldened enough to publish, print and blare whatever they want without any basis[8]. Thus, the pro-Christian, Christian and anti-Hindu media have been so happy to make his utterance[9] headlines!

 50,000 schools will remain closed today!:Manmohan Singh said to a high level delegation of Christian leaders who met him on Thursday evening that the ongoing violence in Orissa is a “national shame”. To protest the attack on the Christian community, nearly 50,000 schools and institutions run by Christian organisations across the country will remain closed across the country on Friday[10]. A peaceful protest rally outside the Orissa Bhavan is planned on Friday. Several peaceful rallies are also expected to be held at various other places. The CRPF, which has been deployed in trouble-torn Orissa, is making all efforts to bring back the violence-affected families who have fled their homes for forests fearing attack from right-wing groups.

The Christians all the way to meet PM and others! Alarmed with the ongoing attacks on the Christian community, the seven member delegation, including two archbishops and a bishop, demanded that central para military forces be deployed in the affected areas to prevent reoccurrence of violence. They also asked for a CBI inquiry in the matter. The vice-president of National Council of Churches of India, Sushma Ramaswami, who was part of the delegation said, “The PM repeatedly said that the chief minister of Orissa, Naveen Patnaik, and the governor, have failed in their duty. He said that he would immediately call them and remind them of their constitutional responsibility to ensure the protection of all citizens.” Ms Ramaswami also said the Prime Minister assured the delegation that immediate financial relief would be provided to the families of those who lost their kin and to those who have been injured. All Christian organisation, including the Catholics Bishop Conference of India (CBCI), National Christian Council and Evangelical Fellowship of India have come under the National United Christian Forum to protest the violence aimed at the community. CBCI spokesperson Babu Joseph, who was a part of the delegation, said, “This is only the second time after 1998 when an all India call for closure of Christian institutions have been given. In 1998, it was due to the attacks in Dangs in Gujarat, but this is at a much larger scale and several lives have been lost.” Ms Sushma said they also asked the PM to ensure that at least the local Christian leaders be allowed to visit the local areas to reassure the people and take stock of the situation. The delegation submitted a memorandum which listed 26 people who lost their lives, 41 churches, four convents and five hostels which were destroyed, over 250 houses damaged and seven institutions attacked.

Hindu leaders do not care: What would have happened, if Hindu leaders tried to meet PM? It has not happened and therefore, the question does not arise. But, still, the learned PM and others do not bother as to why the Swami and four other Hindus were killed? Who killed? And why they were killed? But they go on sidetrack the issue of “Christians being attacked” and so on, even not bothering about the Hindus attacked.

A Hindu Swami killed while celebrating “Janmasthami” festival in Secular India! – The Christians meddling in Orissa, killings and communal issues

A Hindu Swami killed while celebrating “Janmasthami” festival in Secular India!

The Christians meddling in Orissa, killings and communal issues

Vedaprakash

vedamvedaprakash@yahoo.com

Late news of killing an old man by the unknown killers: Now, it is evident that the Christians have started indulging in terrorist activities in Orissa, after inciting the otherwise peaceful, innocent and calm Oriya people. Throughout India, Hindus were celebrating “Janmasthami” – the birth day festival of Lord Krishna. The old-man, Swami Lakshmanananda was also doing that unaware of the fact that he would be killed soon. The Christians have been bend upon this man ever since he started campaigning against their activities. The John Dayal’s tirade against Swami Lamanananda has been open and glaring[1].

The conflicting reports about killing of the Swami: The news of killing of Swami Lakshmanananda and four disciples, including a woman by the unknown people – has been reported differently by various leading and local papers.

The Swaami was reportedly killed a group of armed at his Jalespata ashram in Kandhamal district of Odisha on August 19th, 2008 (Saturday) in a grenade attack, shot dead and so on. Read the reports: “The Hindu” reports like this:

Orissa police on alert after ashram attack

Prafulla Das                http://www.hindu.com/2008/08/24/stories/2008082460251000.htm

 

BHUBANESWAR: The police all over Orissa have been put on alert after Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Swami Lakshmanananda and four disciples, including a woman, were killed in an attack by armed men at Jalespata in the communally sensitive Kandhamal district on Saturday (19-08-2008).

Maoists suspected

The assailants opened fire and hurled bombs at his ashram at 8.30 p.m., Director-General of Police Gopal Chandra Nanda told The Hindu over telephone. “We suspect that the assailants could be Maoists,” he said.

The Superintendent of Police and district officials reached the spot.

Mr. Nanda said several senior police officials were asked to go to the district to prevent any untoward incident. The SPs in all 30 districts were put on alert.

Police sources said police were deployed near churches and prayer houses in the district.

On Friday, a threatening letter was received at the ashram and the Tumidibanda police station was informed.

Last year, Kandhamal district witnessed large-scale violence involving Hindus and Christians on Christmas-eve, following an attack on Swami Lakshmanananda.

Another report of “Kalinga Times” from Bubaneswar has been as follows:

Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader, four others shot dead
24 Aug, 2008, 0107 hrs IST, IANS

http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/PoliticsNation/VHP_leader_four_others_shot_dead/articleshow/3397757.cms

BHUBANESWAR: At least five people, including a top leader of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), were shot dead in an ashram in Orissa’s Kandhamal district by an armed group during Janmashtami festival celebrations on Saturday, the police said.

Over 20 armed people attacked at the ashram at Jalespata village, some 340 km from here, at about 8 p.m. and started firing.

“Five persons were killed. They include Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati,” Gopal Chandra Nanda, state director general of police, told IANS.

The dead include Swami Amrutananda, a woman and a boy, he said.

The police could not confirm whether the attackers were Maoist guerrillas.

Saraswati was a senior VHP leader.

The police have clamped orders prohibiting the gathering of four or more people in the entire district.

After hearing the news of the killings, thousands of people blocked roads in several places of the state.

The media has sensationalized and internationalized the Kandhmal issue: The media has definitely internationalized the issue[2], of course, the Christian romanticism in such activities have been more noticeable. Hundreds of news coverage in western media and more blogs appeared condemning the “Hindu communal forces”. The NDTV recorded as follows:

“A team from the National Minority Commission will visit riot torn Kandhamal district of Orissa on Monday, where night curfew continues. Curfew has been lifted from district headquarter town of Phulbani, but night curfew will continue in three other towns. This after a week of violence gripped the district when violence broke out between Hindu’s and Christians but the web of violence is not that simple.The Congress has also demanded an all-party meeting on Kandhmal communal violence.

“While the rest of the world was celebrating Christmas, the tribal dominated Kandhmal district in Orissa was literally burning. It was a mysterious mix of communal and ethnic passions that pushed the district into complete lawlessness for over a week. Old and simmering antagonism that existed between the Hindus and Christians and between Kandh tribals and Dalit Panos for years in this district were ignited at the same time and that made the situation get out of control.

“What and who was responsible for the eruption of violence that affected the entire population, across the religious and ethnic divide? With tension still continuing in the disturbed district, a dispassionate study of the circumstances is simply not possible. NDTV takes a look at what lies at the root of the hatred that has set Hindus against Christians and Panos against the tribals.

“The politics of hate: On December 24, the structure set up to hold Christmas celebrations in Brahamanigaon was attacked and destroyed. The provocation was nothing more than the pandal encroaching the main road of the town. That was enough to start an ugly argument, which ended in the Hindus attacking the pandal and injuring two Christians.  After that, a rumour that prominent VHP leader Swami Laxmananand Saraswati had been attacked by a Christian mob at Dasingibadi set off a wildfire of violence across Kandhamal. “How can they attack a revered saint who has been working for the people for last 33 years? You think they want peace,” asks GS Rath, Secretary, Vishwa Hindu Parishad. At the same time, trouble was brewing also between the Kandha tribals and their old adversaries, the Dalit Panos. This mutual hatred had been simmering for the past 20 years with seven kandhs and 9 Dalits killed in clashes in 1994. The kandhs called a bandh on December 25 and 26, to protest the scheduled tribe/caste status acquired by the Dalits recently But many suspect the Kandhs were set up by the Sangh Parivaar, to add to the confusion during the attack on the Christians. But the tribal leaders themselves say it was entirely a coincidence. Lambodar Kanhar, Secretary, Kui Samaj, Kandhmal said, “We had a meeting on the November 29 and decided on the dates. It was just a coincidence and once we decided we went ahead with it.”

“Clash of the castes: The Kandh tribals, predominantly pro-Hindu or Hindus, account for an overwhelming 51 per cent of the population. And nearly 70 per cent of the Dalit Panos who constitute 18 per cent of the population are Christians. That partly explains why the ethnic conflict here sometimes also assumes religious overtones If a Dalit becomes a Christian he loses all privileges and concessions available to the Scheduled Castes but if a tribal becomes a Christian he retains all the privileges available to the Scheduled Tribes. This was at the root of the conflicts – both religious and social. Christian organisations have been pushing for scheduled caste benefits for the Dalits, irrespective of their religious status, the Kandh tribals and the Sangh Parivaar are fighting the idea. What adds to the animosity is the Sangh Parivar’s allegation that Christian missionaries have used allurements and incentives to convert the mostly poor and backward population. Even the BJP, a partner in the ruling alliance feels there should be stricter provisions against conversions. Suresh Pujari, President, BJP, Orissa said, “The core issue is forced conversion by way of allurements or coercion. We need to enact a law that would be so strict that nobody would ever dare to convert people by alluring them.”

“But Christian leaders say the conversion issue has been drummed up just to hound them. “If conversions are only a pretext for anti-minority violence, why are Muslims and Sikhs also targeted even though they don’t convert people? It’s a mindset that looks for pretexts to attack minorities,” said John Dayal, Secretary General, All India Christian Committee. But the fact is, the VHP has been aggressively tackling the Christian conversions here for some time now. In the late 60s, VHP leader Swami Laxmananand Saraswati set up an Ashram in Chakapad and they have been running an anti-Christian campaign in Kandhamal since then. Their sole aim is to re-convert tribals and Dalit Christians. In May 2005, they organised the largest Hindu congregation in Orissa to celebrate the reconversion of nearly 350 tribal Christians. The Swami is very clear about what the real trouble in Orissa is. “The fight is on because we want to them (people) to become Hindus and they want them to join Christianity and convert the land into a Christian land,” said Swami Laxmananand , VHP Leader & Hindu Missionary. Adding to the smouldering situation are election campaigns every few years that feed on and fuel the religious hate campaigns. Christians say religious intolerance has seeped into the bureaucratic and judicial system as well and it is that which explains the administration’s indifference to the anti-Christian violence in Kandhmal.. Christian leaders are also worried about the reaction of their own community to the religious intolerance. They see a rise in Christian militancy in some areas, especially in Bamunigaon where an armed Christian mob retaliated ferociously to the attack on December 25, turning on the local Hindus and attacking the police with firearms. While the state government does not seem to recognise the new threat and blames the Maoists for the armed attack on Hindus in Bamunigaon, the rise of Christian militancy in Kandhmal is indeed a reality and could have serious consequences, both on the minority community and the socio-religious conflicts in future.”

The Police already suspected “NGO-Naxal-Christian nexus”: The police now think it’s a NGO-Naxal-Christian nexus. Wow, that’s really the kind of work Orissa police can be really proud of. In 1999, Australian missionary Graham Staines and his two minor sons were burnt alive for allegedly converting tribals. The Christian propaganda in fuelling the communal hatred is noted by their International reporting and spreading distorted news. Assist News Service could be cited as one example[3]. Ironically, they do not record their overenthusiastic or violation of human rights, religious freedom of others – Hindus etc. They do not record or analyse their provocative actions, utterances and blaspheming Hindu religion, scriptures and Gods / Goddesses. Under the guise of “Liberation Theology”, they have understanding with the “naxals” and others and thus, operating accordingly colluding with them. The GFA has been indulging in such activities[4]. They simply carry out the propaganda that the Christians are attacked in Orissa, persecuted, martyred and so on. They do not bother when a “dalit” woman refused to convert to Christianity was attacked by the christians[5], though they talk about woman-rights, human-rights and what not!

Swami Laxmananda ‘stokes passion’ in Kandhamal”! Of late, particularly, the Swami has become target. Their propagandist journals blared like this[6], “Hindu World Council organizer Swami Laxmananda ‘stokes passion’ in Kandhamal”! So this old-man was strengthening passion, fuelling passion, stirring up anger strong feelings, encouraging rage, adding fuel to fire. Thus, the Christians cannot keep quite or tolerate his nonsense and they have to raise and teach him a lesson. The article contributed by James Varghese & Gospel for Asia, is worth to read to understand their psyche, as giving a photo of the Swamiji, they discussed the issue.

The Christians should stop conversion and dividing Indian society: The study of Christian missionaries and their activities in India at all levels clearly prove that they have only religious arrogance in their conversion activities. They have assumed theological mandate ingrained since childhood or at seminaries afterwards or allured by money and material benefits after growing up and thus, they have been indulging in such unholy activities. Though, they talk in terms of “Vatican Coucil – II” language that they respect “divine” in every religion and so on, their psyche would not change in Orissa or elsewhere also.

Graham Staines and Swami Lamanananda: Here also note the coincidence – “Christ” loving souls are involved (though right now legally not so) in such killing of an old-man while he was celebrating the birth day of “Krishna”. Historically, the “Christ” was derived from “Krishna” as pointed out by many theologians, historians and others[7]. But still, they reverse the history and try to fool Hindus. If they really want peace, why not they celebrate “Janmasthami” with Hindus instead of promoting hatred and indulging in killing a Swamiji? Would they think that this has been revenged for Graham Staines? Or you want more blood? Perhaps, now they can settle the issues and come for dialogue, as more killings would not solve the issues.

The Christians should thus be honest in their activities even in “dialogues”. As usual, I quite the following:

“If believers of Gods abuse Gods, seekers of Gods destroy Gods, faithful followers of one religion question the faith of others and, against all moral and ethical codes and Universal principles, conduct pseudo-spiritual and psychological-religious warfare against one religion, then these activities are not “inculturation” but “outculturation”, as religion and culture are inseparable for Hindus.

 

Theocentric and theocratic eclectics are dangerous as nuclear, chemical and other warheads. The concept of “My God is your God, but your Gods is No God” does not foster understanding, co-operation and goodwill. The concept should be changed to “Your God is my God and my God is your God” and accepted by all religions.

 

This is the only way for humanity today. Super God Rivalry, religious superiority, racial / arrogant theology, theocratic world domination and neo-spiritual globalism cannot make “believers” live in peaceful existence. Therefore, the behaviour, attitude and psyche of the inter-religious theologists should change making “dialogue” a “dialogue” but not a secret “monologue” to undermine, disparage and denigrate other Gods, scriptures and religions. Historical facts, established parallels aftrroer bowals and chronological developments and changes should be mentioned clearly. They should clearly spell out their purpose of dialogue and standards before initiating dialogues.”

Nathuram Godse and Karunanidhi

June 3, 2019

Nathuram Godse and Karunanidhi

VEDAPRAKASH

Godse and Dravidian leaders: Very often the DK-protagonists[1], Communist and the like just blurt out that that RSS killed Gandhi[2]. We do not know why they remember very often or like Godse (1910-1949) like this.  Now, Karunananidhi cries that “the killers of Gandhi should not come to power” right inside the TN Legislative Assembly. “The sinners of Gandhi-killers should not come to power again. Again one Ayodhya, one Rama Ratha, journey of Advani and such things happen, the country would become a jungle[3]. “Another Ayodhya or Rathyatra by BJP’s L.K. Advani would turn the nation into a grave,” he said. UPA allies should ensure that the “followers of killers of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, should not rule the land,” he told the Tamil Nadu assembly[4]. This way he responds to the Communists and others who raised the issue of price rise! Why this crack-pot again and again target Rama?

DMK and BJP: We have to deal with all the points raised by the CM in the Assembly, as every citizen has a right to discuss about what C. M talks officially in the assembly. How he was hobnobbing with the Gandhi-killers for five years (1996-2001) without shame, disgrace or mortification? At that time what he was doing? Even T. R. Balu was hobnobbing with BJP-RSS volunteers for his Central Madras Constituency election.

His anti-BJP tirade could not have been made right inside the Assembly, as it is not Panagal Park or Mayilai Mangollai to talk in Tamil anything he likes.

When Murasoli Maran was proposed as Minister, nationalists raised questions, as he had been anti-nationalist and proven ideologist of Tamil separatist movement[5]. Was was writing in “Murasoli”, the DMLK mouth-piece arguing for “Dravidasthan”. He also recorded in his introduction that Karinanidhi encouraged him to write and accommodated in the paper. However, he assured BJP leaders that hereafter, he would not talk anything against nation, as he would become a “Central Minister”!

The same thing happened with PMK and MDMK. The PMK again surrendered and agreed to bury all its ideologies of separatism, self-determination and LTTE support. In fact, it had carefully withdrawn all its anti-Indian books, booklets and propaganda literature.

As for as MDMK was concerned, Vaiko never minced his words for his sympathy and ideological support to and for LTTE or trans-territorial Tamil movement[6]. So he decided to keep outside the ministry and support.

Dravidian leaders sand Mahathma Gandhi: The Dravidian leaders of all sorts had / have been totally against Mahathma Gandhi. They had scant regard for him and talked and wrote disrespecting him in their propagandist literature and papers[7]. EVR, Annadurai and Karunanidhi have been very much against Mahathma Gandhi and they always used to talk in a very scurrilous, derogatory and debasing manner with sarcasm and ridicule. The way in which they talk in Tamil could be understood the real inner meaning only by the Tamil-knowing people. Just remember how Karunanidhi asked about Rama with his arrogant sarcasm, malicious derision and blasphemous mock with his body language. Thousand times more derogatory attitude would be there when they talked during 1940s. They used to address him as “Gandhiyar”, “Parppana adigoli”, “Varnashrama vithagar” and such words and expressions in a scornful way.

Karunanidhi’s official involvements in murders and assassination, acquitted later: People generally forget the recent past. In how many murders and assassination, Karunanidhi was officially involved?

•     In fact, people, particularly, the non-Tanilnadu citizens know very well that he was one of the accused in the Indira Gandhi attempted murder along with 6 others in 1969. Indira Gandhi gave relief to him by withdrawing the case.

•     He has been also under the suspicion of assassination Rajiv Gandhi, as he was / is having links with LTTE. Even when Priyanka met Nalini one of the offenders and undergoing punishment in Vellore jail, she was asking as to any political parties were involved in the assassination plot of his father?

•     He was also involved in the cold-blooded murder of the Tiruchendur temple priest and people might have forgotten the Justice Paul Commission Report. The report itself was made disappeared ad the Judge made kept quite.

 

Karunanidhi and Commissions: Karunanidhi has always been a man of two faces, many tongues. He keeps harping publicly that he is willing to face any inquiry against him. But when an inquiry commission is instituted, he always runs away from it. He tried to run away from the Justice Sarkaria Commission constituted to inquire into corruption charges against him. Another example is the case where the Justice Paul Commission Report was stolen. A case was registered and in this connection in the Madras High Court his attitude of non-cooperation was heard by Justice Singaravelu. Karunanidhi, the fourth accused in the case, refused to cooperate. In fact, the learned Judge observed that “Even if the 4th accused is brought to Court through some coercive steps, it would be futile and the proposed remedy would only aggravate the malady…

How sins are different? But, now right inside the TN Assembly, he talks about the so-called killers of Gandhi. Nathuram Godse was already hanged for killing the Gandhi. But can he absolve from the above sins? Though, with his power and manipulations, he has covered up, how the facts could be erased from the minds of TN people or Indians?

Karunanidhi and Terrorism[8]: In 1976, Gandhi’s federal government dismissed Karunanidhi’s government on the charges of  corruption. A year later, MGR won local elections and sent Karunanidhi into political wilderness until MGR’s death in 1987.

After a year of direct rule by the federal government, the DMK party regained power in Tamil Nadu in 1989. Two years later the federal government dismissed Karunanidhi for a second time, accusing him of not doing enough to crack down on the Tamil Tigers in his state.

Further, the Jain Commission said, the LTTE was getting its supplies, including arms, ammunition, explosives, fuel and other essential items from Tamil Nadu to continue its fight against the IPKF that too with the support of the DMK Government, State Administration and connivance of the law enforcement agencies.

The report said that soon after the DMK Government took over the reins of power in Tamil Nadu, “the LTTE slowly began to consolidate itself in the State and their clandestine activities, heretofore dormant, became more and more pronounced. All the activities of the LTTE at this stage towards resource mobilisation, propaganda and treatment of their wounded cadres, had taken an anti-national dimension.”

The Commission noted the visit of the then DMK MP, Mr. V. Gopalaswamy, MP (DMK) to Northern Sri Lanka and his reported meeting with Prabhakaran between February 8, 1989, and March 3, 1989.

“This visit by Mr. V. Gopalaswamy, and the manner in which this entire episode was dealt with by the DMK party sent clear signals to the pro-LTTE anti-IPKF elements in the State as well as LTTE itself that the newly-elected Government would not resort to any drastic action against such elements; on the other hand, the impression that the entire episode created was that pro-LTTE gestures, even if they were illegal, would be tolerated by the Government.”

The Commission’s report said the then Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi, was keen that “some satisfactory solution be arrived at with the LTTE so that the Indo-Sri Lankan Accord could be implemented in letter and spirit. He discussed this concern with Mr. Karunanidhi and sought his assistance.” After Mr. V. P. Singh became the Prime Minister on December 2, 1989, it was spelt out that if no solution came, India would no longer give any military or monetary help to any of the groups, nor allow its mainland to be used for militant activities. “The LTTE remained adamant during their parleys with Mr. Karunanidhi, and continued to demand the formation of Eelam,” the report noted.

The interim report said that credible reports existed of “active connivance of some DMK leaders with the LTTE. The LTTE was in continuous interaction with Mr. Karunanidhi, primarily to ensure that their activities continue unhindered even after the Padmanabha killing.” The ATR “noted” the observation of the Commission that there was a nexus between the LTTE and the ULFA and their combined endeavours in Tamil Nadu had also been confirmed.

The Commission’s report ponders over questions of aid to the LTTE in the killing of Rajiv Gandhi. “Were there other forces behind the LTTE involved in the conspiracy for the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi? These are questions requiring a deep and anxious probe,” the report said referring to conspiratorial aspects which were yet to be dealt with by the one-man probe panel.

Soon after the DMK Government took over the reins of power in Tamil Nadu, the LTTE slowly began to consolidate itself in the State. During 1990, a growing nexus between the LTTE and DMK and its repercussions on the local law enforcement machinery were discernible. The assassination of EPRLF leader K. Padmanabha and others at Madras on 19th June 1990 was a shocking reminder of the impunity with which the LTTE could operate in India.

The case assumes significance due to the fact that striking similarities were found in the Padmanabha assassination and the case relating to the assassination of Shri Rajiv Gandhi. It can, therefore, be safely concluded that the growing connivance of the DMK Government with the LTTE having been brought to the knowledge of the National Front Government, effective steps were not taken by the Central government to check it, whatever may be the reasons.

From the evaluation of the material, the conclusion is irresistible that there was tacit support to the LTTE by Shri M. Karunanidhi and his Government and law enforcement agencies.

The charges, put together as long quotations from the report, include: that the DMK provided a safe sanctuary for the LTTE cadres and activists, it gave advice, active assistance, finance and security cover to LTTE operations, and that the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi would not have been possible the way it happened without the nexus between the LTTE and the DMK, a nexus which started a chain of events which led to the survival and growth of the LTTE in Tamil Nadu long after the Government of India’s attitude had changed towards the LTTE and hostilities had broken out between the Indian Peace Keeping Force and the LTTE in Sri Lanka, and finally that the DMK leader and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, Mr. M. Karunanidhi, had “himself been instrumental in ensuring that things went smoothly for LTTE” and that the cadres of the LTTE had little fear of the security agencies in India “thanks to the patronage of the DMK Government”.

Mahathma Gandhi and Karunanidhi: Karunanidhi’s Tamil usage would very caustic, sarcastic and hurting with double-meaning. That too when he talks with vengeance, hatred and attacking mood, his Tamil would be very very sharp and killing. He has been capable of converting a good word into a bad or even vulgar word in Tamil connotation. He never cared for Gandhi or respected Gandhi. He even does not want to call his name “Mahathma Gandhi” and changed his name as “Uttamar Gandhi” when the name of Nungambakkam Road was changed to Mahathma Gandhi Road , he ordered that it should be ” Uttamar Gandhi Road “. Such has been his love, respect and what not for “the Father of Nation”, but now he talks about the killers of Gandhi!

Dr. Subramanian Swamy[9], President of the Janata Party has said: ?It is abominable for Priyaranjan Das Munshi to compare Karunanidhi with the Father of Our Nation. Karunanidhi is the anti-thesis?in letter and spirit?of Mahatma Gandhi. Karunanidhi was a primary accused in the murder case relating to the beastly attack on Smt. Indira Gandhi during her visit to Madurai in 1979. Moreover following the indictment by the Jain Commission, the Multi-disciplinary Investigation Team and the CBI initially viewed Karunanidhi as a prime suspect in the murder of Rajiv Gandhi?.

Killing of many Tamil leaders and the nexus: The LTTE assassinators have been the DK-sympathisers, they have been maintaining close relations with the DK-DMK-PMK-MDMK and other anti-Indian political parties (all TNLA, TNMK, and such other splinter groups). So we can always say like Karunanidhi, the killers of so-many Tamil leaders have been the DK-DMK-PMK-MDMK and other anti-Indian political parties. In fact, Tamils themselves know very well how the liberal, democratic and reasonable Tamil leaders were hunted and killed mercilessly.

Sexual exploitation of women and nuns, pedophiles and all other sorts of sexual crimes of Tamilanadu not considered properly by the woman and social activists!

April 1, 2019

Sexual exploitation of women and nuns, pedophiles and all other sorts of sexual crimes of Tamilanadu not considered properly by the woman and social activists!

IE Aruldass imprisonment 2019

Why certain sex crimes are suppressed, not reported and nottaken into consideration by researchers?: The rape of children (below 18 years), sexual exploitation of women and nuns, pedophiles and all other sorts of sexual crimes have been going on increase, yet, the whole lot of educated, elite and even researchers, historians, women activists and others do not discuss, do not bring the cases into their analysis, as if nothing happened in India[1]. Just in February 2019, when South Indian History Congress was held in Hyderabad, such trend is noted. G. J. Sudhakar delved upon the topic, “Child rights in India – A Historical perspective,” in an abstract way theoretically without touching upon the rights of Indian children violated in India for the last 50 years by the foreigners and Christian missionaries under “pedophile,” sex-tourism and categories. Though, he went on mentioning Acts, he did not whisper about the Supreme Court judgments[2] where foreign and missionary were arrested and even sent to jail. The judgment cited has been illustrative and there have been many cases. Even a general newspaper reader has been seized of such issues, as thousands of such pedophile cases are reported in the newspapers and TV reports[3]. Therefore, it is surprising that the professors had decided not to mention.

Why pedophile crimes are suppressed?: To cite a media report[4], “According to the National Crime Records Bureau a total of 12,363 cases of child rape were reported in the country during 2013 as compared to 8,541 in 2012 accounting for an increase of 44.7%. The maximum child rape cases were reported in Madhya Pradesh (2,112 cases) followed by Maharashtra (1,546 cases) and Uttar Pradesh (1,381 cases). These three states together accounted for 40.8% of the total child rape cases reported in the country. A 2007 WCD study found that more than half (53%) of the children interviewed said that they had been subjected to one or more forms of sexual abuse. Over 20% of those interviewed said they were subjected to severe forms of abuse. Of those who said they were sexually abused, 57% were boys”.

Mahila court sentenced the rapists and  pimps: The Cuddalore District Mahila Court / court sessions judge D Lingeswaran on 07-01-2019, Monday awarded 30-year jail term to a CSI church priest involved in the horrifying Tittakudi rape case of 2014, involving two minor girls from the district and trafficking gangs from across the State[5]. Nine others were sentenced to life imprisonment[6]. The court found 16 of the 17 accused guilty of abduction, sexual assault and other charges. Priest Aruldoss, who sexually assaulted the girls, was also slapped with a fine of Rs 5 lakh. Anbazhagan, the gang’s kingpin from Salem was sentenced to life in prison and fined Rs 3.21 lakh. Sridhar, the driver who took the children to different places, was sentenced to two life terms and fined Rs 4.4 lakh. They were sentenced to different jail terms ranging from double rigorous life terms to one-year rigorous imprisonment after holding them guilty of crimes including kidnapping two minor girls, illegally confining them, selling them to gangs involved in prostitution, sexually assaulting them and forcing them to indulge in flesh trade.

Sex racket started at Idli shop and ended with CSI pastor: On June 8, 2014, two minor girls studying in Class 8 and 9 in a government higher secondary school in Thittakudi went missing[7]. After searching everywhere, their parents registered a police complaint on June 11 to recover their kids soon[8]. After an in-depth investigation, police rescued the two girls from a sex broker identified as Satheesh in Vadalur area and found that they were assaulted sexually and forced into prostitution by Pastor Aruldoss and his associates. In other words, the CSI pastor was actively engaged in such racet, exploiting the poverty of the girls. The case dates back to 2014, when a 13-year-old girl from Tittakudi was befriended by Tamilarasi, who used to run an idli shop. The woman then coerced the girl into having sexual intercourse with her husband and other men. The child was later told that she would be let off if she brought another girl to them. The child then brought another victim, a 14-year-old girl from the neighborhood, to the woman. Both girls were sexually assaulted by the men. It is unbelievable that one girl would simple have sex with many and she would bring another girl for her release. As facts are suppressed, the sex trade carried on is suppressed. In the months that followed, they were trafficked to various places in the State including Salem, Panruti, Vadalur, Virudachalam and Ulundurpet and were sexually assaulted by several men. Police investigation found that the two children had been forced to watch pornography and had been sexually assaulted by several men including priest Aruldoss[9]. The father of one of the girls filed a missing complaint with Tittakudi police in July 2014. Meanwhile, the children managed to escape and reached Tittakudi[10].

The judge imposed punishment according to their gravity of crime: Actually, these sex criminals should not be shown any mercy at all, as they have soiled dozens of lives of young girls.  When Pollachi sexual crime was carried on in Hi-tech manner, this has been done at village level in crude manner. Cuddalore mahila court sessions judge D Lingeswaran imposed more than Rs 25 lakh penalty on them after holding them guilty under various sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act, 2012[11]. Seventeen people were arrested in connection with the case but Tamilarasi and her husband Satheesh have been absconding. Of the other five convicts, four were awarded 20-year jail time while one convict got 10-year imprisonment. Punishment for other accused[12]:

  • Anandaraj – Four life terms and a fine of Rs 2.1 lakh
  • Selvaraj – Three life terms and fine of Rs 30,000
  • Mohan Raj and Mathivanan – Two life terms each and fine of Rs 2 lakh
  • Fathima – Two life terms and a fine of Rs 4.4 lakh
  • Kala alias Mekala, and Lakshmi – Two life terms and a fine of Rs 4.2lakh
  • Amudha – ten years in jail and fine of Rs 21,000

Punishment to all: Sridhar – to undergo double rigorous life terms for forcing the two minor girls into prostitution, two 10 years rigorous imprisonment for kidnapping them, another two 10 years rigorous imprisonment for selling them to gangs involved in prostitution and two one-year rigorous imprisonment for illegally confining them. He also slapped penalties to a tune of Rs 4.22 lakh each on them. The judge sentenced two men – Anantharaj and Balasubramanian – to double rigorous life terms for sexually assaulting the minor girls and another double rigorous life terms for forcing them into prostitution and a 10-year rigorous jail term for kidnapping the minor girls besides imposing a fine of Rs 4.1 lakh on them[13]. He sentenced two men – Mohanraj and Mathivanan – to undergo double rigorous life terms for sexually assaulting the minor girls and imposed Rs 2 lakh fine on them. Selvaraj was sentenced to undergo rigorous life imprisonment for the same crime, besides double rigorous life terms for forcing the girls into prostitution, two 10-year rigorous imprisonment for kidnapping them and two 10-years rigorous imprisonment for selling them to pimps[14]. However, it has to be noted as to whether they would go o jail or appeal again.

Kerala has become an haven and heaven  for the rapists of all sorts! Kerala  Imam rapist arrested in Madurai, Tami Nadu!!

March 8, 2019

Kerala has become an haven and heaven  for the rapists of all sorts! Kerala  Imam rapist arrested in Madurai, Tami Nadu!!

Kerala rapists - fathers and Imams

Kerala has become an haven and heaven  for the rapists of all sorts: Kerala has become an haven and heaven  for the rapists of all sorts and day by day, the clerics have been raping young girls of teen so that they could always been mentioned as kids, children, child and so on. Ironically, they call them “kutty” in Malayalam and it has different connotations in other languages. After Christian Bishop, now an Imam raped a child, that is mentioned as “allegedly” even after the medical examination confirmed. Thus, the media  continue to report that A Muslim cleric, absconding after an alleged sexual assault on a 15-year-old girl near Thiruvananthapuram, was arrested in Madurai in Tamil Nadu on Thursday (07-03-2019), police said[1]. Shafeeq Al Qasimi, who was removed as imam of a nearby mosque after the assault came to light, was arrested from a lodge in the temple city, senior Kerala cop Ashok Kumar told PTI[2]. Former chief imam of Tholicode Muslim JamaAth, Shafeek Al Qasimi, was arrested with his driver Faisal and the Innova car was confiscated.

Kerala Imam rape case - car seized

One month the7 booked have been evading the police: Last month February itself, a case was registered, but, he was absconding[3].  Meanwhile, Shafeeq Al Qasimi, whose religious preachings are popular on social media, is likely to approach the Kerala High Court for anticipatory bail[4]. He was also a member of the state committee of the Imam’s Council[5]. The mosque committee had conducted its own probe and found that Qasimi had indeed indulged in a criminal act by sexually assaulting the girl. This led to his removal from the mosque before the committee approached the police with a formal complaint[6]. In fact, though, the case has been booked against 7 persons, all have been tactfully evading from the police[7]. Is it so easy in Kerala, that law violators could simply hide and evade arrest?[8] Therefore, it is evident that they have “godfathers,” just like how Mulakal Bishop was evading.

Kerala rapists - Imams- popular front leader

Women found him caught: Crime branch DSP (rural district) D Ashokan, the investigating officer in the case, said that a five-member team of Shadow Cops led by additional sub inspector Shibu had been searching for the accused in Tamil Nadu towns. Really, it is intriguing as to why they search for them n Tamil Nadu towns. That means, there has been nexus between the law evaders, charge sheeters and criminals of Kerala have safe haven in Tamil Nadu cities or there have been contacts, who could take care of such criminals. Qasimi had been on the run for the last one month and shifted his place of stay with the help of a relative, who was also arrested and their car seized, Kumar said. Shafeek Al Qasimi was wanted in connection with a case related to the alleged rape of a 15-year-old girl belonging to a family with which he maintained close acquaintanceship[9]. He was caught by a group of Kudumbashree workers engaged in work under employment guarantee scheme near forest region at Peppara, when he reached the spot in a car along with the girl over a month ago[10]. The women grew suspicious and questioned him. But, he managed to flee from the spot in the car. He dropped the girl at her house and then went underground. The women circulated the pictures they captured on social media and brought the matter to the light. Thus, the women have to be appreciated for their brave act of exposing him, while, some of the media persons try to cover up.

Kerala Imam rape case - GIRL

A medical examination of the girl had confirmed sexual assault: A case under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act had been registered against him based on the mosque committee’s statement. Qasimi had allegedy lured the girl to an isolated forest area at Vithura, near the state capital, and sexually assaulted her. The abuse came to light after a group of local women confronted the cleric on seeing him with the school-going girl in the forest.  A medical examination of the girl had confirmed sexual assault following which Kerala police set up five teams and began searching for the Imam[11]. Meanwhile, the minor girl had been transferred to a shelter home under the care of the social justice department where she had given a statement against the accused[12]. Her custody was later handed over to the Child Welfare Committee (CWC). How the other media persons could not know, but go on report and print that “Imam allegedly rape” and so on! Why they have such soft corner with the criminals, that too, on March 8 “International Women’s Day”! Perhaps, they celebrate in this way by covering up a rapist.

Kerala rapists - Imams

The rapist Imam is PF leader[13]: The various allegations include connections with various Islamic terrorist groups. possessing arms, kidnapping, murder, intimidation, hate campaign, rioting, Love Jihad and various acts of religious extremism, the most infamous among them being the Assault on professor T. J. Joseph who had set the controversial question paper insulting the Prophet Muhammed. However, the charges were refuted by the PFI which alleged the accusations as baseless and fabricated to malign the organisation. In 2010, the PFI was alleged of having links with banned Islamic terrorist organisation Students Islamic Movement of India.[48] PFI’s national chairman Abdul Rehman was the former national secretary of SIMI, while the state secretary Abdul Hameed Master was SIMI’s former state secretary. Most former leaders of SIMI were either identified with PFI or were at present holding various portfolios in the organisation.The alleged SIMI connection has been dubbed baseless by the leaders of the Popular Front claiming that the Front was launched in 1993, whereas the SIMI ban came much later in 2001. Retired Indian army officer P C Katoch has claimed that PFI has links with ISI. In April 2013, Kerala Police have raided a training camp held at Narath, Kannur and arrested 21 activists of the Popular Front of India. Two country-made bombs, a sword, raw materials for making bombs, pamphlets in the name of PFI were seized by the police. The raid was held at the office building of Thanal Charitable Trust. A document with names of several leading personalities and vehicles had also been seized, which police suspect is a hit-list. The Popular Front leadership and those arrested claimed that it was a Yoga training programme organised as part of a personality development programme.[18] and asked for a judicial probe by a sitting judge to inquire into the alleged training camp. The State President claimed that this police case was fabricated, and was cooked up in a bid to tarnish the organisation’s image. On 18 May 2013, the NIA had arrived to investigate the alleged extremist activities in Narath.

One more Christian burial right in Residential area in Chennai: Six months after unearthing an unauthorised home for disposal of dead bodies in Salavakkam, Kancheepuram district, a similar case has come to light near Pallavaram, on Wednesday. 26-12-2018. Remember the story of a mysterious hospice near Chengalpet that hit the headlines earlier this year for burying the bodies of its inmates inside the campus? Same is the case here at a church in Pozhichalur, but with a Slight twist. What changed a silent narrow lane into a crowded Ranganathan Street-like, is this St Alphonsa Syro Malabar Catholic Church and the mystery of a ‘body’ buried inside it[1]. The news was first taken to the public last night by a resident here, who belonged to a Hindu group and as the information started spreading across this tightly-packed residential area, it shocked them to the core[2]. Within minutes, it eventually hit the social media and a huge bunch of people marched here overnight. Soon, the police stepped in, raided the place and retrieved a body that was buried inside a chamber in a concrete cemetery in the church. Then they buried it at the Pozhichalur burial ground, after completing legal formalities.

Why the Tamil and Malayali Christians have separate burials and practices?: Still, the social media posts claimed that there were more than seven corpses buried inside the campus. Adding to this, it was also said that more chambers were found inside a room in the church. Following this, News Today visited the spot this morning to find out what has really happened. “This is a Malayalam Roman Catholic church. We are also Roman Catholics, but Tamils. We all used to go for a common church before two years. But, some of their (Keralites) customs differ from us. So they bought a land here and built this church. One of their main practices is, burying the dead bodies in a cemetery that is built inside the church premises. This custom is followed widely in Kerala. The Catholics want more space in India to be filled with tombs, as they want to aggressively show off their presence by all means. In  Kerala, if it were  prue theology, here, linguistic fanaticism to whip up passion dividing people.

The concrete burial vaults – licensed or not: Even in Tamilnadu, they do this in areas like Thoothukudi,” said Kannan, a resident here. He further said, “Following the same, this church members too built the chambers to bury the body of its members. They also claimed that they have applied for license, to make the process legal. The Christians always tell these tales. Even the bone-Thomas of Salavakkam also told but, every thing has been forgotten now, But, before they got the approval, one of the members, a 75-year-old man Lonappan, originally from Kerala, who resided at Pammal with his family, was dead. So, expecting that they would get the license soon, they buried this man here, a week back. The body was kept inside a box and a cement memorial cemetery was built around it.”

Body exhumed and burried again in burial grounds: “However, the police demolished it completely and recovered the body. As it was just a week back, the body was not in a bad condition,” he stated. Other residents showed their strong opposition towards this activity. “This is a pure residential area and we don’t want these kinds of activities here. The government should never grant the license. Such activities are strictly condemned,” said an angry resident, G Mohanasundaram. Speaking to News Today, Shankar Nagar Inspector of Police (Crime) Bhooma Devi, said[3], “we visited the spot after the complaint and recovered a body. Revenue officials are set to conduct an inspection at the church today. Investigations are on.” This incident has brought in much chaos overnight and many residents who spoke to this reporter stressed that they would not allow a cemetery setup in their neighbourhood[4]. Police have launched a hunt of Jose, chairman, and Geo, reverend of the Church. Sankar Nagar police registered case and have launched a hunt for the chairman and father of the church[5].The locals filed a representation with Kancheepuram collector P. Ponniah. On his direction, a team led by tahsildar and Tambaram RDO, rushed to the church on Wednesday evening. Sankar Nagar police provided security cover to the team[6]. But, even if that Jose is tracked and taken for questioning, will the Police could proceed further?

Christian cremation - orde of the dau 2018

Cremation or Burial – the Western discussion: The Indian Christian should listen to Pope and accept cremation. When the Pope lifted the ban on cremation in 1963, why they continue in India even in 2018, even after 56 years? The Christian west has already discussed and decided the issue and many Christians have started for cremation. Cremation is usually considered cheap and cost-effective,  between $700 and $2000. = Rs. Rs. 4900/- and 15,000/- Burial cost is $ 10,000 = Rs.7,00,000/- in foreign countries with other service fees, transportations, grave plot caskets and headstones[7]. Not to mention, staff usage, hearse, preparation of the body and embalming.. It is environmental friendly and saves space. Cremations take no space and in contrary, burials demand new land after each generation passes away. But, cremation does not allow another organism to feed on the body or produce and thus the circle of life is being broken, it means it is environmental unfriendly[8]. So if the Indian Christians are still afford to continue burial, definitely, something has been there, then, the bone-Thomas too have suspicious activities, as has been exposed by the media, but, now suppressed.

Dr William Price - On January 23, 1893

How cremation accepted in Christianity?[9]: The practice of cremation dates back to ancient times, but after Christianity was introduced, cremation in Christian countries was stopped because it was seen as a sacrilegious act towards Christians and God. However, in 1963 Pope Paul VI lifted the ban on cremation[10]. In England and Wales, burial took place principally in churchyards until the late 19th century when advocates of cremation founded the Cremation Society of Great Britain with the aim of constructing the first crematorium. This first Act of Parliament concerning cremation in the UK was the Cardiff Corporation Act of 1894, a piece of legalisation which came about following the eccentric activities of Dr William Price. He got a son named Jesus Christ Price, however, the boy developed convulsions and died. William cremated him on the top of hill. As it was illegal, he was arrested and taken to court. Eventually, Price was indicted on three counts:

  1. That on January 13 he had unlawfully, wilfully and indecently attempted to cremate the body of his deceased infant male child, and that he had caused indignities to the remains of the body;
  2. that by such conduct he had caused a public nuisance and
  3. that he had attempted to dispose of the child’s body when the coroner intended to hold an inquest upon it, without first giving notice to the coroner.

Price’s trial began on February 16, 1884, at the Glamorgan Assizes at Cardiff, and he argued his case. The trial continued, in his final speech, Price said: “When I die, if I cannot get someone to burn my body, then by God I shall somehow contrive to come back and burn myself!” The jury reached a not guilty verdict and Price was set free. On January 23, 1893, after a week’s illness, Price passed away. A week later, a group of people formed the congregation of the first officially authorised and sanctioned public cremation ceremony in Britain.

What is the truth?: Salavakkam concrete vault burials raised many questions and exposed the stereo type modus operandi. Export of skeletons, bones, bone powder and many such allegations were made. However, none knows what the police or the government has taken action against the church authorities. The account of bodies received, disposed etc., are not produced to the public, in spite of the demands made by the villagers. How one more church has been found with the same modus operandi. So what has been actually going on has to be probed. Is there any scam or illegal activity going on has to be clarified.

The Seven arrested by NIA, plot to kill Hindu leaders and ISIS link! Kerala exporting Mohammeda youth to ISIS after nuns and pastors!

December 26, 2018

The Seven arrested by NIA, plot to kill Hindu leaders and ISIS link! Kerala exporting Mohammeda youth to ISIS after nuns and pastors!

 

Why the Coimbatore terror activities are downplayed?: When the people are made to focus on politics with propaganda, implant of fake news created through social media, media conclaves and so on, important news threatening the safety and security of common-men are sidelined, ignored and even suppressed. Thus, the links of Coimbatore arrested men with ISIS, etc., have been marginalized by the media and daily debates have been going on frivolous issues. Coimbatore has been simmering with the Islamic terrorist activities with the proximity with Kerala, gold smuggling and hawala activities. Unfortunately, or otherwise, Kerala’s link with Coimbatore in ISIS activities have been a regular feature. None could forget that David Coleman Headley stayed at Munaru Guest House with all facilities to him, so that he could get information to carry out 26/11 attack in Bombay.

19-12-2018: NIA raids the houses of seven jailed plotters: A team of National Investigation Agency officials from Kochi in Kerala conducted raids at seven places in Chennai, Coimbatore and Tindivanam as part of their probes into a conspiracy to kill Hindu leaders in Tamil Nadu and Kerala[1]. The raids, which went on for 4 to 10 hours on 19-12-2018, Wednesday, were conducted at Otteri, Mahakavi Bharathi Nagar and Pallavaram in Chennai and at Ukkadam, Kunniyamuthur and NH Road in Coimbatore and in Tindivanam[2]. The NIA team of the Kerala police recently arrested a 7-member gang under for conspiring to kill Hindu Makkal Katchi founder-president Arjun Sampath and Sakthi Sena leader Anbu Mani[3]. From the gang, the NIA team learned about supporters holed up in various parts of Tamil Nadu who were to assist them in their operation[4]. The NIA team obtained a search warrant from the NIA special court in Poonamallee and continued surprise checks[5]. They had invoked provisions of the Indian Penal Code and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act against the accused[6].

 

FIR No 977/ 2018 registered: The case was originally registered as FIR No 977/ 2018 at B3 Variety Hall Police Station, Coimbatore City on September 1, 2018, under Sections 143 (Unlawful Assembly) and 120-B (Criminal Conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code besides provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act against the seven arrested accused persons[7]. And the raids carried on now, consequent to further investigation[8]. A group of seven persons from different parts of Tamil Nadu formed a terrorist gang with allegiance to the proscribed terrorist organization ISIS and had entered into a criminal conspiracy to kill some Hindu leaders of Coimbatore, thereby threatening the communal harmony besides the security and sovereignty of India[9].

What recovered at the houses of seven arrested: the details of the houses of the seven arrested and the material recovered are as follows:

  1. S Shamsudeen: According to the police, at 7 am on 19-12-2018, a five-member team of NIA carried out a raid in the residence of S Shamsudeen (20), at Parasurama Street, Pallavaram. His parents live in the house and the search lasted until 8.30 am. However, officials did not disclose if they seized anything from the house.
  2. S Salavudeen: Simultaneously, another team of NIA raided the house of S Salavudeen (25) at Dargha Cross Street at Otteri from 6.45 to 8.20 am. Sources said the NIA took two mobile phones, a DVD, a bank pass book and a copy of the Quran.
  3. I Jaffer Shaddique Ali: The house of another accused, I Jaffer Saqid Ali (29) at Pudu Nagar, MKB Nagar, was searched for two hours by a separate team.
  4. Ashique: at Variety Hall Road.
  5. Faizal Rahman: Faizal at GM Nagar were searched. At Faizal’s house, a 21 cm long dagger, unaccounted cash amounting to Rs 2.16 lakh was seized along with Islamic literature and letters written in the letter pad of a Muslim outfit.
  6. S Ismail (25): of Tindivanam in Villupuram district. Inquiries revealed that Ismayil, the mastermind behind the murder conspiracy was a member of the banned terrorist organisation.
  7. Sahul Hameed alias Anwar (23), from Coimbatore

They had no previous enmity with the Hindu leaders but decided to kill inspired by the IS module. They all had befriended each other through Facebook and WhatsApp, while sharing information inspired on similar ideology[10]. As a larger network of terror links was suspected, the NIA took up the investigation into the case. A week ago, Arjun Sampath appeared before the NIA sleuths and submitted evidence for death threats; he received calls from various anonymous numbers[11].

Arjun Sampath deposed before NIA and given details: Recently, Arjun Sampath appeared before the NIA at Race Course, Coimbatore, and gave a detailed account of the threats he got over phone and submitted evidence. NIA also carried out raids in Coimbatore and Tindivanam. The residence of Ashik at Variety Hall Road and Faizal at GM Nagar in Coimbatore were raided. Sahul’s house in Kuniyamuthur and Ismail’s place at Tindivanam were searched[12]. It is alleged that Ismail of Tindivanam was a secret member of ISIS who passed on information to others through a social media website[13]. The men, police found, did not know each other personally but communicated through social media. In Coimbatore, houses of I Jaffer Shaddique Ali in Pudu Nagar, Ashique at Variety Hall Road and Faizal at GM Nagar were searched. At Faizal’s house, unaccounted cash amounting to Rs 2.16 lakh was seized along with Islamic literature and letters written in the letter pad of a Muslim outfit.On 2 September, these Muslim youths were arrested along with two others, identified as R Ashik (25) of Coimbatore and S Ismail (25) of Tindivanam in Villupuram district. Based on their confessions, the police arrested Faizal Rahman of GM Nagar, who worked as an auto driver, and Sahul Hameed alias Anwar (23), from Coimbatore. The men are currently lodged at Coimbatore Central Prison.

Home-grown terrorism, non-state players and ISIS recruits: Nowadays, the terrorism has been secularized and differentiated also. “Home-grown terrorism” is talked about, as if “foreign-grown” has been different or less harmful. If a terrorist, whether Indian born or foreign born is identified in the context of J&K, where, it is implied that a terrorist could have been hailing from –

  1. Indian side Kashmir
  2. Pakistan side Kashmir
  3. Pakistan itself.

Hence, the categorization of  “non-state players” and “state players” have been started to be used. Earlier, “State terrorism,” “state sponsored terrorism” and such other expressions were used to stress that terrorism itself is encouraged, promoted and sponsored by a state. Now, after J&K terror activities, 26/11 etc., as ISIS has started recruiting Mohammedan youth from Kerala and other places, perhaps, Indian might be blamed for exporting such youth involving in ISIS. Then UN, USA and other statistical figures given would include – ISIS terrorists –

  1. Recruited from India.
  2. Killed hailing from India.
  3. Brought into ISIS territory through Afghanistan from India.
  4. Intruded into Syria, through Turkey and so on from India.

So just like, Kerala exporting nuns, pastors etc., it has now credibility of exporting Mohammedan youth for ISIS! Really, it is god’s own country, thus its sons and daughters are exported in this way to aboard for holy acts, services and war also.

Rs 1,200 Crore Fake GST Invoice Scam Busted: GST Dept unearths Rs. 200 Cr Fraud in Bengaluru, 3 Arrested: How is it possible in Digital world?

November 19, 2018

Rs 1,200Crore Fake GST Invoice Scam Busted: GST Dept unearths Rs. 200 CrFraud in Bengaluru, 3 Arrested: How is it possible in Digital world?

Iron and steel – evasion prone commodities: As for as Iron and Steel manufacture and the products thereof, there has been evasion since early 1940s. Even during the 2000, when, they were brought under Componded levy scheme as “evasion prone commodities,” manufacturers and traders could collude with each other and evaded thousands of crores of duty. About“deferred payment,” initially, no time limit was mentioned and thus, many manufactured, cleared without payment of duty under the guise of “deferred payment,” and disappeared! Ironically, at that time, there were loopholes created by the higher officers at the Board level, they could evade technically with the Rules created for the furnace and rolling mills. The builders also colluded with them, as they received goods, used up in the buildings and the cash paid converted into other transactions.  Scrap imports, high sea sales, substitution with local scrap, fake invoices, dealer invoices and such other modus operandi were used where the departments and allied organizations could do little,as most of the evaders escaped with the lack of evidences and loopholes in the Act and Rules.

MNCs, money flow and corruption: As the MNCshave concentrated in and around Bangalore and they have not been worried aboutfinances, skyscrapers, five-star hotels and infrastructure have been developedquickly from 2005 and they have been changed considerably. Thus, the governmentofficials, builders, contractors, building material manufacturers-suppliers,and all other connected persons and agencies played a crucial role in theinfrastructure developments, but also in all sorts of tax evasions. As the MNCsalways claim that they do not give bribes or commissions in any form to anyofficial or facilitator, the connected persons adapted and adopted variousmethods to pump the money, reaching them, so that the work has been going onsmoothly.

Cheap labour coming from North-Eastern India, etc: Bangalore,Hosur, Mysore and other places have been hubs for the MNCs involved in IT industries, electronics, automobiles, chemicals and pharmaceuticals etc., themobility of men and materials have been considerable and huge profits earned. Cheap labour has been / is being brought from north-Eastern India and from Bangladesh. The illegal infiltrators and the so-called migrants, even coming from Myanmar pose great challenge to locals in many aspects. They create new identities, voter cards, Adhar cards, PAN cards etc. Thus, the connected other businesses – Hotels, resorts, pubs etc., also thrived. As goods and services of all sorts are required, where, money is not an issue, every thing has been going on smoothly, as all have been taken care of. However, unfortunately,certain anti-national, terrorist and economic offences criminals joined and spoiled the commercial activities.

34 fake GST registrations – proves the inefficient programming: A scam involving fake GST bills worth Rs 1,200crore has come to light in Bengaluru[1]. The preventive wing of the south commissionerate of the GST busted the racket after two month long investigations[2].The fraudulent companies were engaged in trading of fake tax invoices for availing input tax credit[3]. This has been there, even before the introduction of GST. The accused were engaged in trading of iron and steel scrap through various companies[4].The kingpins of the scam have been identified as Suhail, Basha and Hafeezur. Significantly, in this industry, most of them  have been belonging to one particular group. Suhailand Basha floated 20 fake companies and registered them under the GST by giving fake names and addresses. While Basha had obtained 14 GST registrations in the names of his relatives and others, Suhail had obtained six[5]. They floated fake companies by giving made-up addresses, which made the investigation difficult[6]. Much relaxed provisions of the GST Act and rules, resulted in such manipulations. However, it has to be noted that each must have had 20 plus 14 fake PAN and Aadhar cards also. That implies either they [PAN and Aadhar] and the figuring persons in the cards have been either fake, fictitious or dead. Therefore, the government documents, in this regard have not been fool-proof and the criminals can exploit.

One computer producing fake GST invoices for thefake companies: All companies, however, in reality operated out of a single office and the bill were generated from a single computer[7]. This has been going on even in the case of Service tax, where just to enjoy the Rs20 lakhs limit, they used to float dozens of companies. The modus operandi involved floating fake companies, issuing fake GST invoices and generating e-way bills with fake vehicle registration details without actually supplying goods[8].The companies were created with an intent to fraudulently pass on input tax credit through these fake invoices. “A search was conducted on 12th of November, 2019. We recovered some incriminating documents from 25 locations and have nabbed three persons who we believe to be the key persons involved in generating these fake invoices,” said G Narayanswamy, IRS Commissioner of Central Tax, Bengaluru South. The accused have reportedly generated and issued tax invoices having turnover of about Rs 1,200 crore having a GST liability of Rs 200 crore. Their confessions have revealed that at least 18 iron and steel producers have availed these bills to claim input credit. Further investigations are underway. 

Proceedings initiated: Meanwhile the three accused have been produced in front of the Economic Offenses Magistrate, Koramangala, arrested under the provisions of the GST law and have been remanded under 14-day judicial custody[9].The GST officials have, till now, detected an evasion of Rs 200 crore of GST in the city, and recovered Rs 140 crore so far[10].The team of GST officials included Tej Kumar, deputy commissioner, Akshatha Shrinivas, assistant commissioner and led by G Narayanaswamy, commissioner, Bangalore South detected the fraud. Incidentally, when the officers work hard and book cases like this, when the cases go to court, most of the revenue cases are lost due to many inherent reasons. Non-cooperation of the evaders in furnishing documents, request interference of vested interests, collusion of some officers, consultants and others, delaying adjudication processes at different levels, improper presentation or lack of evidences and so on. Thus, in spite of the works of honest officers, cases are lost. Therefore, the involved should have some ethics, conscience and patriotism, so that the Indian society could be saved.

Vairamuthu – the Greatest and highly influential Poet has been caught into sexual harassment, exploitation and sexploitation!

October 10, 2018

Vairamuthu – the Greatest and highly influential Poet has been caught into sexual harassment, exploitation and sexploitation!

Vairamuthu - Chinmayi tweets

In high-tech industries how sexploitation breeds: Indian, for that matter, any film industry has been a place of exploitation and sexploitation place only. In earlier times, the actresses and other women associated with films might not have expressed their sufferings openly. Or such sexual harassment narratives might have been confined to the film field and gossiping. With the rise of media and social media etc., people get awareness and stated expressing their views opinion and perspective anonymously or openly using social media. Government of India has passed strict legislation to prosecute the sexploiters at working places. In government offices, definitely, women have started coming out, as full support is extended to them. However, in sophisticated industries, including IT sector, most of the sexploitations, harassments and even crimes are suppressed, oppressed and buried with high-tech compromises. Of course, cine-field has been more sophisticated by other means, yet, some of them have come out to pinpoint the sexual animals hiding behind virtuous masks.

Vairamuthu - Samantha Chinmayi and another

“Me Too” exposing sexual animals prowling in cinema industry: While the MeToo movement goes on in India, three anonymous women have accused Vairamuthu, a popular lyricist in Tamil Cinema, of sexual harassment, while another woman accused veteran actor Radha Ravi[1]. Vairamuthu, with political clout reigns supreme and controls all his critics. Though, recently, caught in “Andal controversy” he could manipulate and escape from legal action initiated. Now, started accusations against him by cine-field women. Two female singers spoke of their instances where they were invited to Vairamuthu’s house-cum-office. Both were 18 years old when they were harassed by him[2]. While one of the women said that he hugged and kissed her, the other shared that he closed the room and touched her[3]. Journalist Sandhya Menon tweeted the victims accounts on their behalf[4].

Vairamuthu - Chinmayi tweets.2

After NanaPatekar and all, now Vairamuthu: After allegations of sexual harassment by Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta on Nana Patekar kicked off the #MeToo movement in India, the campaign has hit Tamil cinema, too, with lyricist Vairamuthu being accused of alleged sexual abuse by a woman, who requested anonymity[5]. This has prompted several others to come forward with their stories on the award-winning lyricist. Singer Chinmayi Sripada, who has been sharing various other #MeToo stories on her social networking page, has reacted and shared the stories on Vairamuthu, too[6]. An anonymous woman has accused the lyricist of sexual harassment at workplace when she was just 18 years of age. Chinmayi shared the story on social media and added, “The industry knows; the men know. #TimesUp The time is bloody up.” The industry knows; the men know. #TimesUp The time is bloody up. https://t.co/UuZpaNQBhm

— Chinmayi Sripaada (@Chinmayi) 1538995949000

Vairamuthu - Sandhya Menon tweets

Chinmayi’s Sripada’s open tweets pointing Vairamuthu: After the first allegation surfaced against Vairamuthu, many others started sharing their story as well. A female singer has alleged that she was asked to join Vairamuthu and a producer at a hotel to spend the night with them, in turn, promising her an opportunity to sing in the producer’s movie.  She accused Tamil poet lyricist Vairamuthu of harassing her when they were both in Switzerland for an album launch or a book launch (she’s not sure) in 2005 or 2006. What she recorded, “Sharing her story on social media, the National Award-winning singer said[7]: “Year 2005/2006 maybe… Veezhamattom, an album for Sri Lankan Tamizhs that I had sung in, as had Manikka Vinayagam sir… We went to Switzerland… We sang… We performed… Everyone left. Only my mother and I were asked to stay back. The organizer (I don’t remember his name) asked me to visit Vairamuthu sir in a hotel in Lucerne. I asked why. He told me to cooperate. I refused. We demanded to be sent back to India. He said ‘You won’t have a career!’ My mother and I both put our foot down… demanded an earlier flight to India and came back.”

Vairamuthu - Siddharth support Chinmayi

Siddharth supports for the cause: Actor Siddharth, who has been proactively tweeting about the #MeToo movement catching up in the Indian film industry, alsobacked Chinmayi Sripaada and tweeted[8]: “Multiple women are speaking out against #Vairamuthu. Without judging anyone, they must be heard. When somebody of Chinmayi’s stature who has so much to lose, stands by the accusers, that’s huge!”

Chinmayee complained against Vauramuthu 09-10-2018

 

Samantha and Varalaxmi too support: Samantha, who has increasingly been speaking out against gender discrimination, took to Twitter and wrote[9], “I am so happy that more and more women are finding the strength to say #MeToo. Your bravery is commendable. I am sorry though that some people, even other women themselves will shame and burden you with the question of proof and doubt. Just know that you are saving many little girls with your voice. I support the #MeTooIndia movement.” She further appreciated singer Chinmayi for her courage to call out Vairamuthu. Actor Varalaxmi Sarathkumar also tweeted in support of the #MeToo movement[10], saying that it was “alarming” to hear these stories. She said that she’d stood up for #MeToo last year and that she wanted more women to come forward and speak up.

Vairamuthu - need not advise to society

Vairamuthu, intellectuality, virtuosity: Vairamuthu, with the political support  reigning supreme in film industry, though, he has less talent than Kannadasan. He has been parading as “Great Poet” and got state and national awards with political recommendations.  The “Andal controversy” exposed his intellectuality of perversity and duplicity. Now comes the sexual harassment accusation. It pierces his virtuosity veil.

  • Virtuosity is used particularly to describe musicians, but also often for writers, actors, dancers, and athletes. A virtuoso is a highly skilled performer, and a virtuoso performance is one that astonishes the audience by its feats.
  • Psychologically there were no doubt good reasons for my attempt; and it was worth while, if only to see of what excesses I was capable in that sort of virtuosity
  • The Law Enforcement Technology Advancement Centre (LETAC) has developed SID version 6.7: a Sadistic, Intelligent, and Dangerous virtual reality entity which is synthesized from the personalities of more than 150 serial killers.
  • Virtuosity is a 1995 American science fiction action film directed by Brett Leonard, and starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe. Howard W. Koch, Jr. served as an executive producer for the film.

In any case, he gets exposed. Better, he stops his advice, discourses etc., given to society and enjoy his life within his private rooms and parlours. The society does not need such spoilers.

Urban Naxals plotting unrest, supporting elite intellectuals and unconnected emeritus experts petitioning for their release – but Hindutva experts keeping quite! [2]

August 31, 2018

Urban Naxals plotting unrest, supporting elite intellectuals and unconnected emeritus experts petitioning for their release – but Hindutva experts keeping quite! [2]

5 renowned persons filed petition to release U-naxals

The emeritus, elite and enthralling status of the petitioners: The five petitioners who moved the Supreme Court on 29-08-2018, Wednesday against the arrest of the five activists were described by the prosecution as “strangers” who could not seek bail for “someone else”. The five petitioners may be “strangers” to the BJP government but not to the nation[1]:

  1. one is among the foremost historians in India – Romila Thapar[2],
  2. another is an economist honoured with the Padma Bhushan – Devaki Jain[3],
  3. the third a professor emerita and Oxford scholar – Praphat Patnaik[4],
  4. the fourth a sociology professor – Satish Deshpande[5] and
  5. the fifth a renowned civil liberties crusader who happens to be the daughter of the late Field Marshal, Sam Manekshaw – Maja Daruwala[6].

None of them has ever been linked to the Maoist insurgency, before or during the era of “Urban Naxals” or “Half-Maoists”. Below is an introduction to those who consider Romila Thapar, Devaki Jain, Prabhat Patnaik, Satish Deshpande and Maja Daruwala as “strangers”.

Dissent safety valve of democracy - SC

Dissent safety valve of democracy – Supreme Court: Earlier on 29-08-2018, Wednesday, the Supreme Court issued notices to the Centre and the Maharashtra government and directed the Pune police to keep the five accused under “house arrest” till the next date of hearing on September 6, 2018. The directions of a division bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice DY Chandrachud came in a public interest litigation filed by eminent historian Romila Thapar and four others challenging the arrests before the apex court. The Court said that dissent is the safety valve of democracy[7]. Hearing over the arrests were also held in the Delhi High Court and a sessions court in Pune. The Delhi HC, which had on Tuesday stayed the transit remand of activist Gautam Navlakha, has said that it would examine the legality of the Maharashtra police action[8]. The court also slammed police for failing to produce the translated version of the FIR and said it was yet to hear the grounds of arrest. Varavara Rao, Arun Fereira and Vernon Gonsalves, on the other hand, were produced by Pune police at the sessions court there.

Councillors for Urban naxals, Prashant Bushan etc

Media picks holes in the Police proceednigs: The document – a remand report – gave 16 reasons why the rights activists should be in police custody, but had none of the dramatic claims made by the public prosecutor in court, NDTV has learnt[9]. The police document, accessed exclusively by NDTV, claimed all activists are members of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) and set up city units of the outlawed group. However, the petition made no reference to key charges made verbally in court and communicated to the media such as a plot to assassinate Prime Minister Narendra Modi or facilitating Maoist funding and weapons via Nepal[10]. When it is communicated to the media, what is the claim of “The police document, accessed exclusively by NDTV” to blame police! The document also did not mention the clashes in January between Dalits and upper caste Maratha organisations at Bhima-Koregaon near Pune, which they were linked to.  So, it is intriguing to note why NDTV wants to dictate the police to conduct their proceedings.

Comrade R letter to Com Prakash 18-04-2017

If the plot-letters Two are fake, why, how and who created?: letters recovered by the police reveal the plot to kill Modi and other details to procure arms etc.[11], and therefore, if the Maoist defenders accuse / allege that they are “fake letters”, they should explain why their comrades have been keeping such “fake letters.” Moreover, the second one has been an “e-mail letter,” and print out taken giving more details[12]. Then, why such fake data are kept in their computer – a question that has to be answered. Creating fake documents, of this nature is also a crime, particularly, of this nature, implications and the issue involved. The previous proceedings clearly prove that they have been advocating violence as a means to achieve their “revolution.” Therefore, only, courts can decide the issue and not the media, demonstration or any influential talks etc.

Letter of Rona Wilson addressed to Comrade-M

Letter recovered from Rona Wilson:The letter dated 18-04-2017 addressed to “Comrade Prakash” by R is as follows:

“Dear comrade Prakash,

Red salutes!

We received your last letter (20/3). Regarding the current situation here Arun, Vernon and others are equally concerned about the two line struggle that is slowly taking shape on the urban front. Followed by the very unfortunate demise of Bijoy da. He was a strong leader with great vision and selfless devotion to the party and the Red Revolution! His leadership was greatly needed in today’s critical times. Things were far better before Prashant’s egoist agenda took over the larger interest of the party and the political prisoners. Com. Saibaba had raised this issue with you back in 2013 when Prashant revolted against Saibaba. We think that in one way the Gadchiroli court’s judgment has helped by restraining Prashant in doing further harm to the Party. With that said, we are working tirelessly to put up a strong defense for Saibaba. Every possible legal help in favour of the jailed comrades is being sought. HB has been given all the responsibility to coordinate programmes and protests to raise public opinion in our favour. On 20th April we will organise another program under the banner – Committee for the Defense and Release of GN Saibaba. We will leave no stones unturned in providing relief to all pol. prisoners. Com. Ashok B., Amit B., Seema and Sudhir have strongly pitched for more regular meetings of CRPP EC. It will facilitate smoother coordination of numerous pending cases in Delhi, MH, JH, Odisha, CHH. On the other side Com. Siraj has shown willingness to contribute for the party in all possible ways. He has been studying the party literature, resolutions and the party constitution for the past several years. Despite challenging situations he is ready for second APT cross-over. This time I would like to send another comrade with Siraj. His CV is in the memory chip with this letter. Sometime in last year Vishnu had met Com. Basanta to facilitate the deal. At the time Com. Kishan was unable to meet directly. I hope by now you have received details of the meeting and requirement of 8cr for annual supply of M4’s with 400000 rounds. Please convey your decision. Defeating Hindu fascism has been our core agenda and a major concern for the party.

Several leaders from the secret cells as well as open organisations have raised this issue very strongly. We are working to consolidate ties with like-minded organsiations, pol. Parties, representatives of minorities across the country. Modi led Hindu fascist regime is bulldozing it’s way into the lives of indigenous adivasis. In spite of big defeats like Bihar and West Bengal, Modi has successfully established BJP govt in more than 15 states. If this phase continues then it would mean immense trouble for the party on all fronts. Greater suppression of dissent and more brutal form of Mission 2016 (OGH). Com. Kisanand few other senior comrades have proposed concrete steps to end Modi-raj. We are thinking along the lines of another Rajiv Gandhi type incident. It sounds suicidal and there is a good chance that we might fail but we feel that the party PB/CC must deliberate over our proposal. Targeting his road shows could be one effective strategy. We collectively believe that survival of the party is supreme to all sacrifices. Rest in the next letter.

With warm greetings

R

Dubious History of Urban naxals

Why Hindutwa professors, right wing experts lack in matching Romila Thapar and other comrades?: Romila Thapar and company have come out openly and filed petition in the Supreme Court. However, no Hindutva historian, emeritus expert,  professor or anybody come forward to file a petition to support their ideology or implead then to be a party, as their counterparts have filed petition. In fact, there have been many such beneficiaries under ND regime who have been enjoying or enjoyed awards, rewards, foreign travels, postings as member of ICHR, ICCSR etc. But, none of them responded, but, keeping quite. Why cannot they match Romil Thapar or other emeritus experts? In what way, are they lacking and lagging behind their ideology or expertise? Some have gleefully have written books, “Why I support Modi?,” whereas, there, they have been plotting to kill Modi, as the media reports point out. So why this indifference, callousness or cowardice? When the ideological war has been declared and going on openly, what is the use of hiding behind and keeping silence.

She studied in Panjab University and London’s School of Oriental and Asian Studies. After the demolition of the Babri Masjid, she went beyond the confines of academic writing to speak out against the communal interpretation of history. Thapar opposed changes to school history textbooks – one of which she had authored -when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was in power. She then faced several threats and harassment. A petition against her was filed with the Kluge Chair in Countries and Cultures of the South at the Library of Congress in 2003, alleging that she was “Marxist and anti-Hindu”. She declined the Padma Bhushan twice, on principle that she only accepted honours from academic bodies for her work.

Patnaik is also a columnist for The Telegraph. He has worked on the dynamics of a mixed economy, theory of imperialism, and Marxist theory. Patnaik has been one of the main voices among the retired faculty against the current administration of JNU and the vilification of its students and teachers under the BJP regime.
