Corrected version of the previous article on the Communal Bill

The proposed Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill has been drafted outside Parliament by the National Advisory Committee. The bill was drafted by a subgroup-convenor being Ms Farha Naqvi and includes Teesta Seetalvad ,Harish Mander and others. It is an indication of how unbiased and objective the Bill will be.
The question which comes to my mind is why was this Bill drafted? What is the urgency? There is no preamble to justify the need of this Bill. When the country is reeling under inflation and corruption and the next is the cross border terrorism. There is no doubt that terrorism must be tackled; for this there are several Centre and State agencies. These have to be made more effective by giving them autonomy and by the government restraining from interference. Why was POTA repealed?
There are 9 articles and 139 sections and subsections in the Bill. The most portent being Art 3(E) all others revolve round this. This is the single most mischievous and pernicious concept in the Bill. It straight away divides society into two blatantly-‘the Group” and ‘the others’. The Group consists of the religious and linguistic minorities and the others are the majority Hindus.
What is baffling is that even when the Hindus in a district become the minority in strength according to the Bill’s concept the Group does not apply to it. Hence right from the very start the Bill is a communal Bill meant to garner votes and not meant to prevent communal violence. This is obvious and apparent when the Bill further clarifies that the Group is considered to be victims and the “Others” perpetrators. How is victim hood bestowed on the Group straight away? Can the others not be victims-and what if they are? Can there be a more communalized perception. Yet according to Manish Tiwari this is a progressive bill! This Bill precludes the Hindus under the assumption.
What is still more prejudicial is the statement that all acts of violence between same religious groups are considered outside the purview of the proposed Bill. Hence if there is a riot/clash between the Sunnis and the Shias,if Christian church groups are involved in a riot these do not come under the purview of the Bill..
Another inexplicable mistake is the inclusion of the Schedule Castes and Schedule Tribes. These have a full fledged Commission to look into offences committed against them. So if a person commits an offence against this group then he/she is doubly punishable .Can a perpetrator attract double punishment for the same offence? The drafters of the Bill have ignored Justice Ranganath Misra Commission report on linguistic and minorities. Because the situation differs from place to place. A minority in a Taluka can become a majority in another State and Taluka. Every other language spoken by a people apart from the State becomes a linguistic minority. Hence a Tamilian will be a linguistic minority in every other State except Taminadu.The same goes for other languages.
It is intriguing how the drafters have been unable to hide their fangs when it comes to Art 3(f) the creation of a coercive environment. This concept is not easy to prove because boycotting the profession of means of living of a member of the Group, insulting the members of the Group by refusing to use their vehicles, educational institutions, transportation, depriving or threatening to deprive members of the Group their Fundamental Rights, depriving the members of the Group of their place to live and means of their livelihood without their permission etc. All this or any one goes to mean ‘coercive environment and is punishable. This would mean that refusing to sell Shabana Azmi –the actor-a house she wants to buy is creating a coercive environment and can be punished. The drafters have forgotten that others too have their Fundamental Right to sell or not to sell their land or houses-to use or not to use the vehicles owned by the minorities. Hence this proposed Bill negates the Fundamental rights of the Indians and is biased and discriminatory.
Section 8 violates the Freedom Speech of the majority only. Because it says that any advertisement, written statement, gestures or oral statement made against a member of the Group if it leads to violence or spreading tension against members of the Group it constitutes ‘Hate disinformation’ What about Rahul Gandhi now with his sob story saying that his grandmother was murdered, his father was murdered and he too will be killed by ‘them’ Who is the ‘them’ It can be the Sikhs it can be the LTTE. Does this qualify for ‘hate disinformation’? But RG wants to target the BJP so the ‘them’can be anyone who opposes him.
No riots are logical and can be accepted .But riots are not new to India.It is made to look that there was only one riot and that is the Gujarat riots after the Godhra carnage. George Augustine in his article ‘Kill the mocking bill cites Ms Zenab Banu in her “Politics of Communalism: a politico-historical analysis of communal riots in post-independence India with special reference to Gujarat and Rajasthan riots”(1989) there have been 74 communal riots between 1953 and 1977 0f which 75 % were instigated by Muslims.
Section 9(2) makes the public servant, such as District Magistrate or police officer ,criminally liable by presumption and not evidence .Vague language is used on ‘dereliction of duty’It is not only vague but gives a powerful handle to religious minorities to terrorize and or intimidate members of the majority community 12,13 and 14 there by tries to impose responsibility on public servants –whether they could honestly or not contain riots and violence. Two instances I would like to cite-on this basis is not Rajiv Gandhi responsible for the Sikh pogrom? He went even a step further and justified it. Will a straight forward cop like Julio Riberiro be penalized for not preventing the riots in Maharastra?
Section 20 is a blow to Federalism and is anti-constitutional .It creates confusion about the power of the Centre and the State because communal and targeted violence would be considered “internal disturbance” .And any riot in any one area is fit to be termed as “internal disturbance’ and hence fit to impose the President’s rule. The rest of the Bill deals with National Authority and State Authority-Rehabilitation and compensation etc.When it comes to the National Authority and State authority of the 7 members it is stipulated that at least 4 must belong to the minority community. Again the bias is obvious. Why should the Governor be the authority to appoint the State Authority is another disputable area?
What baffles one is why this Bill.If THE Centre was keen on fighting terrorism then why did it repeal POTA? The proposed Bill is focused only on ‘saffron’ terror. Communal violence and terrorism has no colour Terror cannot be fought on such a prejudicial and biased manner. Let us uphold truth and speak out.No religion except Islam has countenanced jihad no religion except the minority religions uphold fatwas and use the pulpits to spreads hate .We are playing with innocent lives Fight terrorism please but not based on injustice. This is nothing but a communal Bill.
It is discriminatory, biased, anti-constitutional and unjust. It is our duty to fight the communalism of the Congress which has revealed its true color in the form of the Bill. It is the sacred duty of each and every one of us to fight this Bill and the communalism of the Congress. We are one –irrespective of religion, community and caste and region.We are a nation-we are all Indians. The Congress is divisive and wants for cheap politics to communalize and polarize the nation.A study revealed that 95 percent of the Muslims have Hindu ancestry. It is in this oneness that our strength lies. Lets defeat the Communal Congress and its base motives-its power hungry strategies to garner votes it is prepared to sacrifice this nation of Indians on the altar of communalism and violence.Let this proposed Bill be “torn apart and throw it off-it is complete nonsense” for it is no Prevention of Communal and Targeted violence but a vote garnering strategy at the cost of the nation.

‘Youngsters like quiet government”

‘Youngsters like quiet government’ says Jaivardhan Singh-son of Digvijya Singh. He needs to qualify what ‘quiet government’ is .In fact his quiet government may be what Manmohan Singh’s government is-quite incapable, quite knee deep in scams,quite quiet with governance paralysis. This is what Jaivardhan Singh-the 24 year old who is making his electoral debut from Raghogarh in Madhya Pradesh.Like him there are other youngsters who are foreign educated all sons of some of the Congress netas.They cannot connect with India the atypical example is Rahul Gandhi-the poor rich man. All these youngsters have no oratorical skills least of all understand the intricacies of the Indian polity and populace. It is the dynasty rule-that in itself is a negation of democracy. These men have been born with sliver spoons in their mouths-no hard work-no achievement to their credit and no understanding of the pangs of poverty. It is all ready made for them.It is easy for them because they have not worked their way up.Unlike Modi who from being a tea vendor has struggled and worked hard and come up.Yet the Congress whose hands are first reddened by the Sikh pogrom and now blackened by the Coalgate and painted multicolored all over its image with all sorts of scams-with a growth rate of 2 percent talks big. Rather it dares to talk big.
The fact is the Congress and its youth brigade is in jitters. Modi sends down the shivers. Able to establish his connect with the crowd-he has something to say and something to show as achievement. He has a vision which is his mission. Modi had not come the easy way to power and unlike the youngsters who had come the easy way and now think that their foreign education will help them in politics forget that some of our great leaders had not even touched a foreign shore but were great administrators. One such leader was late Kamaraj. Another one who studied only till the 5th standard is M.Karunanidhi.Yet these men proved to be able politicians and administrators. Even Jayalalithaa just completed her tenth standard-but her understanding and political acumen are very sharp. And now we have Modi.The world was his university-hard work his studies and he is a self made man .His passion for the country is apparent and obvious. To think that because one studied abroad gives one the legitimacy of becoming politician is a farce and a mirage.
The Congress must learn from Modi.He is firm-decisive-able to put forth ward his vision and mission with conviction. He is bold and articulate. Which very few of the Congress nehas are. One can only laugh at Renuka Chowdary-Manish Tiwari and others. They are trying to put on a show of courage while they actually cut very sorry figures. This is why when Manish Tiwari compared Modi to Hitler one is puzzled. But on some thinking can understand him. Coming from a fascist party and under fascist tutelage as his leader Mrs Sonia Gandhi he projects what he has imbibed. One can only laugh at these small men/women trying to act big and brush them aside.
So the sons of the Congress nehas –the youngsters’ brigade can under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi form the dreamers club where instead of hearing the bugle call of Modi – sounds to them the trumpet-they can all dream and fantasize for they are scions accustomed to luxurious lives and pampering. Cocooned in their world they find Modi very difficult to comprehend. They want a “quiet government” which means no governance. Let them go to slumber…

Coterie culture of Congress netas

Coterie culture of Congress netas
So here comes the latest of the Gandhi’s name to be prefixed to a Central Government scheme-the Indira Amma Anna Yojana or Indira Bakshya Suraksha Yojana-either of this according to Union Food Minister K.V.Thomas will be the name of the Food Security Act. It is not shocking because the Congress men and women cannot think outside the Gandhi family. They have a warped perception.Coming from a parampara of anti democracy governance-a dynasty thinking these netas had easy lives by just being sycophants. The Congress party is a fascist party and is a total negation of democracy. The Congressmen and women cannot think afresh-submerged in scams and fascism in working. No wonder their perception projects Hitler in whoever opposes them. Is it small wonder that Manish Tiwari’s sees Hilter in Modi. We call this projection .We understand the working of the minds of these Congress men and women-By being subservient, and groomed in a coterie culture ministers like KV Thomas and Manish Tiwari can be easily deciphered.Their mentality decoded and what they suffer from diagnosed.
To get back to K.V.Thomas’s proposal to name the Food Security bill after Indira Gandhi is not shocking. It is nothing short of sycophancy on the part of the Food minister and it is nothing short of anti democratic thinking. Nobody raises the question of why is the Central government schemes named after the Gandhis. What is the logic for this. The scheme is not funded by the Gandhi family- neither is it funded by the Congress party. Hence how can the Gandhi name be fixed and the gains accrue go to the largess of the Gandhi family.
In a democracy there is no first family and moreover it is against the very spirit of democracy to name the Central government schemes after the Gandhis.This is sheer deception. The Parliament voted for the schemes-in this case for the scheme of the Food Security Bill. In a parliamentary democracy the process for debate and discussion cannot be ruled out simply because this scheme was the pet idea of Mrs Sonia Gandhi and her NAC. But once introduced in Parliament and debated and passed then it becomes the Central Government’s scheme. How can one party claim it as its own? There are about 28 Central government schemes that are named after one Gandhi or the other-this from Indira Gandhi,Rajiv Gandhi to Jawaharlal Nehru.What is the rationale for this ? “Right from drinking water, rural electrification, from pensions to crèches from ambulances to sporting facilities.” Every major item which touches the lives of ordinary people-are all under the Gandhi name. This apart of bridges, airports, awards and all big and small facilities provided by the government goes under the name of one of the Gandhis. This is cheap publicity and wanting to claim something which is not theirs. It must be remembered that these schemes are with public funding-that’s people money.They are not the party’s funds or the Gandhi family’s private finances. So if this is not cheating the people then what is cheating? To usurp the people’s as the Gandhi’s own is deception and falsehood.It is public tax payers’ money .By doing this the Gandhis are not only indulging in deception but making the people of this country beggars.
It seems that the various schemes are the charity of the Gandhis.What audacity and what cunning. Are the people simply living on charity of the Gandhis.On the other hand it is the Gandhi family which is living on the people’s hard earned money. For example what right has Sonia Gandhi to No 10 Janpath road? When her son Rahul Gandhi claims that is with the poor one wonders why such a person with such a poverty state of mind want to spend every birthday of his abroad? Why should his mother not be satisfied with the best medical facilities in India but why does she go to the US for medical treatment. Whose money is all this? The three layer of security for the Gandhis is again the people’s money and the tragedy is that the people have no security.
Rahul Gandhi can think of telling the people: “Your dreams are mine” He further asks them to fantasize-not just seeing helicopters but by wanting to fly in them…Poor people from advising the dalits to break into the Jupiter velocity to fantasizing RG has plunged into providing four rotis a day. So all these schemes for the past 56 years have not ensured the hungry people of India with four rotis a day. After 56 years of the Gandhis being in power Sonia Gandhi finds that Food Security for the 67 percent of the population is needed to see that they do not go to sleep hungry.
This nation has the right to demand from the Gandhis what their regime was all about? Why has it pushed more and more people into starvation and backwardness? Why is Rahul Gandhi not answerable to the Sikh pogrom legitimized by his father? When the Congress so glibly talk of the Gujarat riots it forget that it is carrying a beam in its eye and is accountable to this nation for the Sikh pogrom.
And now for Rahul Gandhi to promise four rotis is cheap politics. To name the Food Security Bill after one of the Gandhis is third rate deception. And on these false promises should we vote for the Gandhi headed Congress? Is it not enough that they cheated the people for 56 years? What credit do the Gandhis claim enough is enough? Do not continue insulting the people and making their dreams yours. Do not ridicule the people by asking them to fantasize Rahul Gandhi cannot connect with the people hence these dreams and fantasies are like soap bubbles-they vanish. So to vote for the Congress is voting for dreams that will not be fulfilled and for fantasies which will evaporate. One hopes that the Food Security Act will not be named after any of the Gandhis-this if the Congress respects democracy and the people of India-who are not living on the charity of the Gandhis.

The ‘complete nonsense’

The Media was recently full of the ‘complete nonsense’ made by Rahul Gandhi.There were people who praised him and others who were stunned and shocked at this immaturity.One thing must be clear no body differs with him on his dissent with the ordinance. But three things stand out clearly and disturbingly -One-why did he take so long to utter his ‘complete nonsense’. Second the language he used and third the timing of his outburst. But for these he has the right to dissent and to rubbish it. What shocked me was that some writers praised him to the skies and overlooked what baffled the country and shocked the nation. It was not that RG cannot disagree-he must and should and it was good that he did not agree to the ordinance. Those who faulted him raised precisely these three premises. In the whole ‘Complete nonsense’ issue the whole bunch of Congress leaders looked ridiculous. Those who waxed eloquence on the ordinance made a U turn at the out burst of the ‘complete nonsense’ by Rahul Gandhi.
What worries me is the excuse Rahul Gandhi gave later-after he met the Prime Minister. According to RG he is young and sensitive. A 43 year old man calls himself young and makes that as an excuse to the nation to overlook his outburst and his inordinate words he used .Not even a school boy would be excused if he used such language and here is the 43 year old man the Prime ministerial candidate of the Congress wanting us to overlook his outburst because he is young!. Will the nation be safe under a man who cannot measure his words and who is unable to contextualize his condemnation of the ordinance? Why had he to make the whole cabinet look like a pack of fools. So are we to heed to one who is 43 years old that he is young and hence he can undermine the PM. Brush aside all this why did RG not speak up in Parliament and even later? After all his mother Sonia Gandhi was in the core group which okayed the ordinance and even was in such a hurry to route it outside the Parliament and issue an ordinance. What was the hurry and why did Rahul Gandhi remain silent? These questions have raised a larger issue- can he be trusted with the government because he has revealed himself to be imprudent, ignorant and immature. In fact it is these which one will find in children to be excused. So when he says he is young he agrees that he is immature, imprudent and ignorant.
It is a dangerous proposition to think that the Congress is projecting him as the future PM.This apart one wonders what if the same language was used by Narendra Modi and if he rubbished the ordinance in the manner which RG did? It is absurd that the whole congress leaders rushed to condemn the ordinance after having sent it up to the President and when three stalwarts of the cabinet were called by the President to clarify. Even then they made such a show of the ordinance and made the nation feel that it is an important and significant piece of legislation-namely to shield convicted MPs. Why all this for the simple fact that Lalu Prasad had to be saved. In the process something good happened .The President himself was not convinced of the ordinance and is certain that he would not have signed it.
But now after all the tamasha the Congress wants to give the credit to Rahul Gandhi. What for? Nobody knows. The games the Congress plays is very dangerous. At this rate Rahul Gandhi will never learn.If all the Congress men and women want only to be ‘yes’ people.Have they not a mind of their own? Do they think that this nation is one of fools? At the end of the whole unfortunate episode Rahul Gandhi stands out as one who has no control over his thoughts, and words and one who does not intervene at the appropriate time.This has been throughout evident .When there is a crisis/disaster he is not in the picture. He refuses to learn, grow and mature. Yet he wants the nation to excuse him because he is young. If he could not deal with this how is he going to deal with larger issues? It will all be complete nonsense and rubbish. We the people are not here for such nonsense and rubbish. Let the Congress not tinker and tamper with governance and government of the nation.
Look at the issue of toilets before temples .If Jairam Remesh had said it he did not act on it. Now if Modi says it what is wrong in it. Sanitation and potable water are significant life inputs. It is not the distribution of food grains alone but the basic needs of water and sanitation has to be taken care of. If Modi prioritized these it is good and need to be welcome by the Congress and others. Instead even if Modi says something that is essential and good for the nation it is being faulted. Can the Congress and Modi not be on the same page when it comes to sanitation and potable water? They should. Jairam Ramesh till date has not shown in deed what he stated. So now what is there to apologize to Ramesh Jairam for saying something which is correct but not being able to implement it.
Then it is Congress who should examine whether it has got its priorities right.Food with clean drinking water, clean toilets and proper health services is essential for better nutrition and better health.This the NAC and the Congress have overlooked. Now taking the larger canvas in perception Modi has stated the right thing-toilets before temples. For we have enough, mosques, temples and churches what we lack is better sanitation. After all cleanliness is next to godliness.The gods must be smiling .For gods are where you are-in homes,in schools and within each one of us. Good healthy living, calls for toilets and let there be a campaign towards this. Modi is one up and is right. Just to bang at everything that Modi says makes those who indulge in such bashing and banging ‘complete nonsense’
