Sri Krishna blasphemed by the rabid anti-Hindu atheist Veeramani, Hindus condemn and complaint, Stalin’s dubious stand in the politics and elections! [1]

DK Veeramani hate speech 23-03-2019-1

DK Veeramani hate speech 23-03-2019

Veeramani’s derogatory remarks against Sri Krishna, demonstration and complaint: Speaking at an event organised by Dravidar Kazhagam recently on 23-03-2019, Veeramani spoke on the topic ‘Pollachi Scandal – Irresponsible Brahmin Behaviour’. He said Lord Krishna should be the first person who should be booked for the criminal act of eve-teasing[1].  He added[2], “…We can take the example of God known as Krishna. He stole the clothes of women, when they were taking bath and gave back under the guise of giving salvation by asking them to come to him naked and collect the clothes. Such was the crooked Krishna. But, this picture was framed, kept in house and worshipped without shame. So how such worshiping person could be honest and discipline? Thus, from stealing butter at small age, to stealing women’s clothes at adolescence and further asking them to come out, Krishna was the instigator of eve-teasing and a criminal. He should be booked and arrested. Can anybody disagree that Hindu religion cannot even project a god with discipline, honesty and decency. How then, the worshipping gang can claim any discipline? But, Periyar brought out all these nonsense and they say that discipline has gone only because of him!.” Veeramani is well-known for making derogatory remarks on Hindu culture, practices and Gods. Through its mouth-piece, “Viduthalai,” every Krishna Jayanthi, it would come out with rabid, highly malicious and disparaging articles on the Krishna’s hagiographic and apocryphal legends. Because of the Tamilnadu state government support, all of his activities are ignored and he thinks that he has been above law. Most of the advocates and judges have been the nominees of Dravidian parties and they have been faithful and obedient employees of their political masters[3].

Hindus staged demonstration: As the video was widely circulated on WhatsApp, it drew the attention of a large number of Hindus. Dr. M.A. Venkata Krishnan Swamy has given a proper rebuttal to K Veeramani. Pointing out to the blabbering of Dravida Kazhagam’s leader, he questioned[4], “Whether the Dravida Kazhagam accepts the character of Bhagawan Krishna? People who kept talking that there were no such characters(Lord Krishna) and Puranas were fake seemed to have accepted the Puranas now. So, it conveys that they have accepted Lord Krishna and Devas as well. Since they have accepted the God now, it is clear that they talk nothing but blabbering.”  While reminding about E.V. Ramaswamy’s derogatory comments about womanhood and marriage relationships, Dr. MAV Swamy added, “Pollachi rapists should have followed EVR and definitely not Lord Krishna”. The rebuttal video from Dr. MAV Swamy is also getting circulated on social media[5]. As this time, this roused passion among the Hindus, they demonstrated against his remarks and also filed complains.  On 02-03-2019 [saturday], Hindus staged a demonstration at Chepauk condemning Veeramani, in which, many scholars participated. Particularly, Prof M. A. Venkatakrishnanan, HOD of Vaishnava Studies, University of Madras participated and explained the issue in context, condemned Veeramani and exposed his illogical blasphemous statements. Perhaps, this has been the first time in the Dravidian rule that Hindus have effectively come out and refuted the atheists and condemned them[6]. However, the media has downplayed the event. What prof M. A. Venkatakrishnanan spoke can be listened to here[7].

Criminal case has been booked by the Central Crime Branch police: The Central Crime Branch (CCB) police has booked a criminal case against Dravidar Kazhagam leader K. Veeramani for his disparaging remarks against a Hindu God while addressing a public meeting recently[8]. The police filed the case after receiving complaints from Hindu Makkal Katchi and Thirumoolar Thiruthondu, a religious organisation[9]. In their complaint, the Thirumoolar Thiruthondu members alleged that Mr. Veeramani spoke of Lord Krishna in a derisive manner at a meeting in Periyar Thidal, Vepery. B. Senthil, general secretary, Hindu Makkal Katchi, complained that Veeramani, in his speech, had made derogatory remarks hurting religious sentiments and promoting enmity. Hence, they wanted the police to take action against him. The CCB registered a first information report (FIR) against Mr. Veeramani under sections 153 (Wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot), 153A (Promoting enmity between classes), 295A (Deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings), 298 (Uttering, words, etc., with deliberate intent to wound the religious feelings of any person), 505 (1)(b), (Inducing any person to commit an offence against the State or against the public tranquility) and 505(1)(c)(statements creating or promoting enmity, hatred or ill-will between classes) of the IPC.

DK veeramani canvassed for Tiruavukkarasu

DK veeramani canvassed for Tiruavukkarasu Congress leader, hitherto abusing each other ideologically and for other reasons.

Congress leader sat with rable rouser Veeramani: A day after a few Hindu Munnani cadres disrupted a Dravidar Kazhagam (DK) public meeting at Trichy, the city police on 08-04-2019, Friday arrested a total of 16 people in connection with the incident. The arrested include cadres from both outfits[10]. Gandhi Market police registered a case and arrested nine Hindu Munnani members including functionaries Manikandan and Balamurugan[11]. The police also arrested seven DK members including local functionaries Arockiyaraj and Mohandoss. This has been typical secular police action, just to satisfy both cadres. DK members alleged that negligence in providing security and failure to evacuate Hindu Munnani cadres from the venue led to the violence which left four of their cadres injured. The outfit was holding a public meeting showing support for Congress candidate Su Thirunavukkarasar at Keerakadai Bazaar when a host of Hindu Munnani members threw stones at the gathering. In fact, video shows exchange took place between the two groups. However, it is strange to note, how, Thrunavukkarasar, who wants his name to be called so not as “Thirunavukkarasan” or “Thirunavukkarasu,” but with respect, sat together wit the anti-Hindu Veeramani, tha too, when he indulged in such rants recently made against Sri Krishna. He was in AIADMK and BJP and now in Congress, therefore, none could believe that he has been so naïve to accommodate such rabble-rouser.

DK version of attack - Krishna issue

DK version of attack – Krishna issue

DK justifying the derogatory remarks of Veeramani: DK members said that permission for the meeting was obtained from the election and police departments by intimating them of the presence of DK president K Veeramani and DMK MLA K N Nehru. Though DK cadres preferred to host the meeting near Sedal Mariyamman temple in Bhima Nagar, they were given permission to host the meeting at Keerakadai. As the meeting progressed, while DK’s general secretary Arivukkarasu was justifying a controversial remark made by DK leader K Veeramani at Hindu god Krishna, a group of Hindu Munnani cadre pelted stones and plastic chairs at the dais. “It seems like a planned attack as there was no adequate police protection to prevent the violence. Even after the assault, the vehicle of our leaders was stopped and there were attempts to assault them,” a DK member.

Stalin – Veeramani plot 07-04-2019 i.e, Stalin claries and defends Veeramani and Veeramani accepts his defense!

Permission to conduct meeting does mean to justify blasphemy: Already, police complaint has been lodged against Veeramani. Therefore, it is meaningless, justify his statements made against Sri Krishna. Meanwhile, Hindu Munnani founder organiser Rama Gopalan claimed DK members attacked them first after they opposed DK leaders criticising lord Krishna. “As per election model code of conduct, remarks insulting religious sentiments are prohibited. Though we have lodged complaints across against K Veeramani’s derogatory remarks, police are hesitant in taking action,” Rama Gopalan said. People of Tamilnadu should wait and see, what action police or any law enforcing authority going to take against Veeramani or his cadre?

DK and Hidu Munnani clash in Veeramani meeting-Tamil news cutting.2

Some leaders condemn Veeraani, but, attack also: AMMK deputy general secretary TTV Dhinakaran, in Trichy on Friday, condemned the attack by Hindu Munnani members on the cadres of Dravidar Kazhagam (DK) over the alleged derogatory remarks on Hindu gods. He also disapproved of the comments made by the rationalists[12]. “What they (DK) did was also wrong. But if they say something derogatory in a democratic country, one can sue them and can react to them in the court of law. The act of attacking them will set a wrong precedence in Tamil Nadu and it will trigger turbulence among the people. If they take the law in their hands, it will boomerang,” Dhinakaran told the reporters in Trichy in his response to DK and its president K Veeramani’s religious remarks on Hindus[13]. As he has been talking according to the occasion and context, it cannot be taken taken seriously.

Dravidian DK-DMK have been definitely anti-Hindu and neo-atheist rabid, but, pro-Mohammedan and Christian for votes!

Dravidian DK-DMK have been definitely anti-Hindu and neo-atheist rabid, but, pro-Mohammedan and Christian for votes!

Karuanidhi abused Hindu as thief; questioned Rama, in which college he took engineering degree to build bridge and so on!

Karuanidhi abused Hindu as thief; questioned Rama, in which college he took engineering degree to build bridge and so on!

Dravidian leaders have been anti-Hindu and blasphemous in their speeches and writings: EVR or the so-called Periyar “great person” had been totally anti-Hindu and brought out dozens of anti-Hindu tracts without any historical or logical basis. However, they have been printed, reprinted and circulated by the Self-Respect Publishers, Vepery, DK Headquarters. Those who read, have been simply carried away and they never verified the veracity and historicity of what he wrote some 80 years ago. The trend continued with Annadurai, who was a less rabble rouser with verbose and double-meaning. As for as Karunanidhi is concerned, he had been vulgar, blasphemous and indecent commenter. Thus, his son Stalin and daughter Kanimozhi have been in the same way, abusing and blaspheming Hindu religion, scriptures and practices. As their, anti-Hindu activities, discourses and abuses have been in Tamil, perhaps, they are not known to other language knowing Indians and believers.

Karunandhi had been dexterous to exploit every occasion to attack Hindu religion etc., in his own way!

Karunandhi had been dexterous to exploit every occasion to attack Hindu religion etc., in his own way!

The Dravidian leaders abuse ladies even inside Tamil Nadu State assembly: The double entendre, double-meaning, speaking with vulgar verbose have been the standards, feature and hallmark of Dravidian stage speech, dialogue and discussion, whether on the stage or inside the Tamil Nadu state Assembly. Karunanidhi’s remarks against T. N. Anatha Nayaki[1], Jeyalalita[2] and others have been too well-known to be repeated here. As for as theism is concerned, it has been anti-Hindu only and they ave never commented or talked against Mohammedans of Christians. Their commonality has been to attend Ifter and Christmas parties, eat with them and comment upon the Hindu festivals in contrast.  Karunanidi has been the trend setter in this aspect. If all of his comments are compiled, a book can be brought out.

Stalin anti-hindu, Indian Express

Stalin’s clarification came of April Fool’s Day: DMK president M K Stalin 01-04-2019, Monday asserted that his party was not against any religion[3] and deprecated what he called a disinformation campaign that his outfit was an “enemy of Hindus.” Ironically, the day has been “Fools Day,” commemorated on April 1st by playing practical jokes and spreading hoaxes. The jokes and their victims are called April fools. People playing April Fool jokes often expose their prank by shouting “April fool(s)” at the unfortunate victim(s). Some newspapers, magazines and other published media report fake stories, which are usually explained the next day or below the news section in smaller letters. Aside from April Fools’ Day, the custom of setting aside a day for the playing of harmless pranks upon one’s neighbour has historically been relatively common.

Stalin anti-hindu, Times Now

Jagathrakshakan might be a believer, but, Stalin not: The Dravidian party chief, addressing a poll rally near Pandianallur, Sholingur, Vellore, described his party nominee for the Arakkonam Lok Sabha constituency, S Jagathrakshakan, as a deeply spiritual man who spent his money during his previous tenure as MP to renovate hundreds of temples in Arakkonam, besides developing infrastructure and undertaking other welfare initiatives[4]. “Jagathrakshakan has another specialty. He is a deeply spiritual person[5]. Some are even today criticising DMK as an enemy of the Hindus. Are you saying this even after seeing him (Jagathrakshakan)..?” The DMK chief blamed sections of the media for deliberately creating a false impression that his party was against the Hindus[6]. It is not the question of Jagathrakshakan seen with him or DMK, but, the other way. He joined DMK, evidently, to break the Vanniyar vote, but, he did not want to be an atheist.

Abusing Hindu religions, Gurus and all, he allowed his first wife to portray before Sai Baba!

Abusing Hindu religions, Gurus and all, he allowed his first wife to portray before Sai Baba!

“…….we accepted God or not, he had accepted us”: Stalin said the party follows what late leaders CN Annadurai (Anna) and M Karunanidhi had spelt on the religion. “Anna had stated that onre kulam; oruvane devan (one God, one community)[7]. We are following this ideal. We are never against (the belief in) God,” he explained, adding Kalaignar (Karunanidhi) had said that whether we accepted God or not, he had accepted us[8]. Citing the popular dialogue “we are not against temples, our principle is that it should not become a camp of the wicked,” written by his late father M Karunanidhi in the 1952 Tamil film “Parasakthi,” he said the DMK had never been against those worshipping God[9].  Tamil Nadu people know very well about these leaders. When the Pillaiyar / Vinayaka idols were broken by EVR, the poonools cut by the Dravidian cadres, women attacked with virulent abusive language, no action was taken. Karunanishi had been more virulent and abusive in his language. And they have not been so spiritual, if at all of any spirituality, it is highly idiotic to claim that, “…….we accepted God or not, he had accepted us”!

Stalin anti-hindu, money control

Men blaspheming and wives worship – is this could be called as secular or showing equal respect to all religion or not anti-Hindu?: Stalin said his wife offered prayers at temples every day and added that he had never prevented her from visiting shrines since it was her wish[10]. Men blaspheming and wives worship – is this could be called as secular or showing equal respect to all religion or not anti-Hindu? Even, children may not agree with this type of logic. “They (sections of the media) are, however, indulging in a disinformation campaign that DMK is against the Hindus and temple worship,” he said and added that people are not ready to believe it. Stalin said when he took over as party chief last year, he categorically stated at the general council that he would be for all religions and against none; that his party would be on the side of all religions and not discriminate on the basis of caste or religion. “I had spoken categorically that DMK is not against any religion. However, continuously, sections of media and press are indulging in wrong propaganda. We are not worried about it as people are on our side,” he said.

When he went to housing board, one woman affectionately applied kumkum on his forehead, but, he erased immediately, and all onlookers were shocked!

When he went to housing board, one woman affectionately applied kumkum on his forehead, but, he erased immediately, and all onlookers were shocked!

Stalin’s attitude also is known to public: The top DMK leader’s assertion that his party was not against any religion comes nearly two months after a video clip surfaced on social media purportedly showing Stalin criticising Vedic ceremonies in Hindu weddings. After the two-year-old clip surfaced, the ruling AIADMK had accused Stalin of trying to divide people on religious lines. In the 1.28-minute video, Stalin purportedly takes potshots at “Vaidika,” Hindu marriages presided over by a Brahmin priest. The smoke from the yagna (havan) makes not only the bride and groom “cry a little,” but also those around to witness the ceremony and creates a sombre ambience, the DMK leader was seen purportedly commenting in the video. Rejecting claims that Stalin’s speech was offensive, a DMK spokesperson had said marriages sans ceremonies had all along been the cornerstone of the party’s ideology. “It is a two-year-old video clip and it has now been released seeking to gain political mileage by right wing supporters,” the spokesperson said and added that the video featured only a portion of Stalin’s speech. Stalin has been caught by the believers, when, he erased kumkum, Sandal paste applied on his forehead at two places. This has also created aversion against his attitude. Above all, these leaders wish on te occasion of festivals and celebrations of Mohammedans and Christians, but, they never participate in Hindu festivals. On the contrary, the DK mouth peace “Viduthalai” comes out with blasphemous articles and these leaders pass negative comments, that too, participating in their festivals.

Stalin response to The Hindu 23-09-2018

In 2018 also, the same issue cropped up, because of the attitude of Stalin: Last year, 2018, when a question, “You took a stand on God in the party’s general council for the first time[11]. Was it because you feel that it is difficult to run a campaign against God and religion, especially after the BJP’s growth?” was asked, Stalin, explained as follows[12]: “I would like to give a detailed reply. Anna proclaimed that there was “one God and one race”. He also said, “I would not break Pillaiyar, nor will I break coconut for him.” Kalaignar had reiterated this point many times. But a section is deliberately suppressing these facts and seeking to portray us as atheist and anti-Hindu. Kalaignar always had a non-partisan approach. He was not against faith in God or in religion (as his actions in government would prove). When I spoke about God, I kept in mind the ideas of Anna and Kalaignar. Contrary to your assumption, the DMK has never preached against God and religion”.

June 2018, SriRangam temple, Stalin, priest apply paste-Stalin removed-BJP

Stalin is afraid of losing Hindu votes: Now, because of elections and his anti-Modi tirade, he cannot justify his more rabid anti-Hindu hate speech, or his rants coming out through Verramani and others would not be ignored by the voters. As these leaders try to appeal Dravidian cadres by allowing their women folk to be so faithful to Hindu religion, but, talk nonsense and DMK talk less nonsence, but allow DK Veeramani to talk more nonsense,  people may not be so fools to keep quite. At one stage, they may retaliate as Hindus. That only, Stalin denies not want and now clarifies. As Rahul and Priyanka have started going to temples and doing all antics, Stalin also may visit few temples, like Titumavalavan, who talked openly that all temples should be destroyed. And Sathur Ramachandran has already unveiled their dubious plan, “We can easily fool Hindus by applying vibhudhi on our foreheads, they would vote for us”!

Kanimozhi’s visit to Tirumala in 2012 and criticism made in 2017: Kanimozhi, the Rajya Sabha MP claimed that she visited Tirumala, as a member of the Committee under Venkaiah Naidu, during her controversial speech made at the WAC, Trichy on 06-01-2018. She had claimed that she had recently visited the popular Tirupati Tirumala temple in Andhra Pradesh[1]. Kanimozhi said she, along with some other MPs, was taken to the temple by Vice President Venkaiah Naidu, as a part of a Home Affairs Committee, through a special route arranged for the group[2].  “If you give more money and buy a ticket you get special dharsanam [visit]. If not, you stand for 10 hours, 20 hours or two days. That is god………He (accompanied MP) told me that all their wishes are being granted and they are being protected…I then asked him, there is a money collection box right in front of the god. Why is there a security personnel with a stun gun protecting it? People who run the temple are not confident that god can protect the money collection box. Why should I believe in god?”…..” When TNM contacted Kanimozhi she was unfazed by the opposition that the speech has garnered[3]. “Whatever happens, I will face it legally. I said this at an Atheist Conference,” she says[4]. This made me to dig into her visit, because, as an atheist, she should not have visited the temple. The background of the visit and the details are as follows.

As even when non-Hindus visit, they sign a form that I believe in Sri Venkateswara, you must have signed.

If not, Venkaiya Naidu should be held responsible for violating the norms.

As they went to inspect, evidently, they signed.

 If not, you stand for 10 hours, 20 hours or two days. That is god……… You should have waited, paid and went side, but, you enjoyed VVVVIP darshan! Shame, atheist, shame!!
That is Kanimozhi, the principle-less atheist, and thus,anti-Hindu!
He (accompanied MP) told me that all their wishes are being granted and they are being protected…I then asked him, there is a money collection box right in front of the god. Why is there a security personnel with a stun gun protecting it? The Telugu people explicitly answered that people like you might loot, that is why they stand with guns.

Moreover, as you had gone there to inspect the security aspects, you could not have made such idiotic statement!

People who run the temple are not confident that god can protect the money collection box. Why should I believe in god?”….. Shame on you, idiotic that we have MP like you and allowing you inside the temple.
Perhaps, you had gone inside to know the security arrangement to attack!
If that God does not protect, I say that God is not there….. Had you gone there to inspect the security aspects, or the existence of Go?

Your blabbering exposes your honesty, integrity and sincerity as a MP.

Thus, it is evident that by all means, the MP has lost her credibility and she should be stripped of MP post or she should resign immediately.

Cong MLC, P Sudhakar Reddy condemns Kani on 12-01-2018

Complaints made against Kanimozhi: The local BJP leaders led by former TTD Board member G Bhanu Prakash Reddy submitted a written complaint to Urban ASP Srinivasulu against DMK MP Kanimozhi here on Thursday, (11-01-2018) for hurting the religious beliefs of Hindus[7]. She made adverse comments on the Lord Venkateswara at Tirumala at a Tiruchi meeting in Tamil Nadu[8]. Rayalaseema Porata Samithi (RPS) convener P Naveen Kumar Reddy has condemned the DMK MP comments against the presiding deity of Tirumala. He demanded that the state government’s Endowments department take legal action against Kanimozhi. The RPS activists staged a dharna near Alipiri. Ironically, in Tamilnadu, the so-called Hindutwavadis, Sangh-parivar, BJPwalas and other “Hindus” have been keeping quite for unknown reasons. The foreign delegates and other responsible delegates who attended the WAC should take care of the facts.

The World Atheist Conference 2018 conducted with tall claims: The World Atheist Conference 2018 (hereinafter mentioned as WAC) was conducted with tall claims made on January 5th to 7th 2016 at Trichy. It was commenced here with an emphasis on setting right in equalities in the society, quelling superstitions, and propagating rationalistic thinking. Titled ‘Atheism – Hope of Humanity’ and what not, the three-day program organised jointly by the Dravidar Kazhagam, Atheist Centre, Vijayawada and The Rationalists’ Forum witnessed delegates representing rationalist organisations in different parts of India and other countries, taking part in the inaugural and plenary sessions, and presenting their views on an array of topics that included atheism, religious fundamentalism, and medicine and atheism[1]. Presiding over, K. Veeramani, president, Dravidar Kazhagam, said atheism in India means much beyond non-belief in supernatural and religious rituals, and that the prime focus was on rectifying untouchability in the society perpetuated in the name of religion, and denial of education on the basis of birth[2].

WAC, Trichy - foreign delegates, Nadaswaram

Features of the Conference (as claimed by the organizers): As claimed by the organizers, Atheist – Humanists around the world participate in the conference, besides the leaders of various atheist, rationalist and humanist organizations from all the States of the country, Paper presentations by atheist scholars and activists followed by deep deliberations on the different perspectives of atheist philosophy, form the major part of the conference proceedings, Sharing of religion-free living culture in various countries / societies and churning up the substance on living free from the fear of god, enabling humanity to progress and peace, Revealing the success, in establishing the egalitarian society free from the belief of non existing ‘god’ through the services of organizations and movements by atheist philosophers and Documenting the pioneering role rendered by atheist movements in the East during the early historical period.

Garry McLelland-WAC, Trichy

The Rationalists’ Forum: The Rationalists’ Forum claims that it, “is a Humanist Movement founded by Periyar in 1971 and presently patronised by Dr. K. Veeramani, President, Dravidar Kazhagam. It is a unique movement, because of the composition of membership and the activities. People who are committed to Periyar ideology and employed in various organisations – government, public private co-operative have shouldered the responsibility of preaching and practicing rationalistic ideals”. The activities include organising meetings, seminars, science exhibition, superstition exposure show to develop scientific temper and humanism among the public. Many State and Central Ministers, Vice Chancellors of Universities, educationalists, officials who are at helm of affairs to-day were the earlier functionaries of The Rationalists’ Forum.

Film show, video presentations, science exhibition, book fair are planned. A massive public procession with demonstrations exposing superstition is scheduled. A Souvenir containing essays, real stories, personal experiences of eminent persons on atheism and allied ideologies gets released on the occasion. Many leaders and persons of eminence from State and Central Governments, educationalists intellectuals participate in the proceedings.

WAC, Trichy - stage-1

Were foreign delegates conscious of the Dravidian atheism?: The foreign delegates attended the conference, but, what they spoke was not revealed by the organizers, the media and the participants:

  1. Gary McLelland[4], Chief Executive, International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU), London[5], and
  2. Avinash Patil, Executive President, Maharashtra Andhrashraddha Nirmoolan Samithi, Pune, Maharashtra, were the other guest speakers.
  3. Elizabeth O’ Cassey[6], Director of Advocasy – IHEU, Brussels, Belgium, inaugurated an exhibition of books at the Atheist Book Centre. Rustam Singh, Atheist Alliance International, USA;
  4. Suba Veerapandian, General Secretary, Dravidian Tamil Federation; and
  5. Rajaratnam, Pro-Chancellor, Periyar Institute of Science and Technology (Deemed to be University), Vallam, Thanjavur also spoke.

Five books were released on the occasion: ‘Bhagavad Gita – Myth or Mirage,’ and ‘March of Atheism’ authored by Veeramani, Compilation of ‘Old Testament of Indian Atheism’ by Surendra Anjat, ‘Essays on Matters which Matter’ (A Rationalist’s Perception) by S. Rajaratnam, and Compilation of ‘Revolt’ published by Periyar in 1928 and 1929. It is evident that Compilation of ‘Old Testament of Indian Atheism’ by Surendra Anjat, and conspicuously, there was no book released about the position of atheism in Islam or existence of “Islamic atheists”. As happened in 2011, this year also, most of the foreign delegates came and attended did not know about DK, EVR, Dravidian atheism etc., as they talk about Humanism, human rights, etc.

WAC-3, women delegates from north

Inaugural session: During the inagural session, A. Raja, Sp. Suba Veerapandian, Gary McLelland, Elezabet O’Cassey, Avinash Patil and others spoke and thereafter, papers were presented. Ironically, A. Raja, former Union Minister of Telecommunication (who was in jail for 2G scam, came out on bail and acquitted by the Court recently), said he has been deriving inner strength from atheism. Ironically, the DK-ideologists talked as usual rhetoric with verbose without any new points. As usual, they made “stage-type” talk in Tamil and using few words and sentences in English to show off that it was an international conference. Ironically, the delegates came from Pujab, Maharastra, Andhrapradesh and Kartataka were talking in their mother tongue and Hindi when they conversed with each other. The same thing happened during the All India Atheist Conference held  at Periyar Tidal in May 2010, where, one invitee spoke in Hindi and it was translated by the DK ideologist. Now also, K. Veeramani during his speech accepted that the language bearer exists among the delegates coming from those states. Incidentally, their anti-Hindi stand gets exposed here, as with Tamil alone or any particular regional language alone, they cannot do anything.

Gandhi Congress conducted Cow-slaughter in public in God’s own country Kerala with highest litracy and Beef-fest also and Communists happy to eat! (2)

Gandhi Congress conducted Cow-slaughter in public in God’s own country Kerala with highest litracy and Beef-fest also and Communists happy to eat! (2)

Meat export- India

Why CPIM also repeat the tune of Rahul saying that “It is a thoughtless act”:  “It is a thoughtless act and it will only help Sangh Parivar outfits. It is sad that Youth Congress activists stooped so low for publicity,” CPI (M) Member of Parliament MB Rajesh said. Thus, whatever ideology, they speak before the media, they have been concious of what the act could lead to. Beef is a staple in Kerala and the new rules have caused widespread anger. Though Kerala is one of the few states where cow slaughter is not banned, animal lovers said “such brazen acts” glorify cruelty towards animals and demanded action against Youth Congress activists. The BJP, which is trying to gain a toehold in the state and won its first seat in the last year’s assembly election, also criticised the slaughtering of the animal at a busy market in the heart of Kannur while the Congress asked its cadres to use restrain during protests. BJP state president Kummanam Rajasekharan tweeted the video of the slaughter, saying it was the “cruelty at its peak”. Youth Congress activists defended their move, saying it was a natural form of protest. “The Centre is denying food to the people, it is the biggest cruelty,” Youth Congress leader Rejil Makutty said. Police registered a case against Youth Congress activists who slaughtered a cow in public and cooked its meat. They were booked under IPC Section 428 and section (ii) of the PCA Act 1960.

28-05-2017 beef-fest Kannur Cong and DYFI- cutting cow

Country’s Rs 1 lakh-crore meat industry or BJP’s alleged Hindutva agenda: The Centre’s decision, which will hurt millions of poor farmers and squeeze supplies to the country’s Rs 1 lakh-crore meat industry, is being seen as a move to push the BJP’s alleged Hindutva agenda. Cows are considered holy by many Hindus, and have gained in importance since Prime Minister Narendra Modi stormed to power in 2014 with several BJP-ruled states enacting strict laws to punish cow slaughter. As protest mounted in the state, chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan shot off a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying the Centre couldn’t draw up a menu and change the food habits of people. “Today it is saying you can’t eat beef, tomorrow it can say no to fish also. We will not allow this to happen in our state,” the CM said, adding the decision would leave many people jobless. The state government is talking to legal experts to challenge the notification. Many of the ruling CPI (M) leaders come from Kannur, where the Left party is involved in a bloody turf war with the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh, the ideological parent of the BJP. In Kerala at least 500,000 people are directly or indirectly involved in cattle trade, slaughterhouses and allied areas. According to the state animal husbandry department data, 117,000 adult cattle and 70,000 young cattle were slaughtered in Kerala in 2016 where beef accounts for 60% of the total meat consumed. Since most of the cattle come from the neighbouring Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, Kerala meat traders fear that the new notification will embolden Hindu fringe outfits and hit supply leading to a shortage of meat in the state. Cow slaughter and smuggling are banned in most parts of the country but there are no curbs on buffalo meat, which is eaten widely as a cheap source of protein. But the new norms will also hit buffalo meat, which goes by different names globally and is also referred to as beef in India, a reason enough for the so-called cow protectors to assault people or even force shut down of eateries.

Muslims would be the worst affected, because of the restriction: The government has banned the sale of cows and buffaloes for slaughter through animal markets, rules that will hurt millions of poor farmers and squeeze supplies to the country’s meat industry, thus the media too started propaganda[1]. However, it has been cautious enough to tell the fact, “The new rules do not amount to a blanket ban on cattle trade or their slaughter, and license breeding remains legal”[2]. But the move will crimp supplies to the country’s Rs 1-lakh crore meat and allied industries which sources about 90% of their requirements from animal markets. The worst hit, however, will be the mostly Muslim meat and leather traders who face mounting violence by increasingly assertive cow vigilante groups. Farmers will also be hit because they will be deprived of a traditional source of income from selling non-milch and ageing cattle.

The new procedure introduced fir the sale of cattle for slaughter: The central regulation for cattle business notified this week allows only farmland owners to trade at animal markets. The notification covers bulls, bullocks, cows, buffaloes, steers, heifers and calves, as well as the camel trade. To be implemented in the next three months, the move introduces lots of paperwork for cow traders who are mostly poor and illiterate. For instance, before the trade, both seller and buyer will have to produce identity and farmland ownership documents. After buying a cow, a trader must make five copies of proof of sale and submit them at the local revenue office, the local veterinary doctor in the district of the purchaser, animal market committee, apart from one each for seller and buyer. “Take an undertaking that the animals are bought for agriculture purposes and not for slaughter,” reads a directive to committees overseeing animal markets in the rule notified under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act of 1960 that gives the Centre powers over animal welfare. The new rules were approved by former environment minister Anil Madhav Dave before his death last week, ministry sources told HT. The ministry drafted the rules on Supreme Court directions aimed at improving condition of animals in these markets. Considered holy by many Hindus, cows are a sensitive political topic and have gained in importance since Prime Minister Narendra Modi stormed to power in 2014 as several BJP-ruled states enacted strict laws to punish cow slaughter. But many say the expanding protection for bovines is a proxy war against Dalits and Muslims – as exemplified by the lynching of dairy farmer Pehlu Khan in Rajasthan in April or the flogging of Dalit men in Gujarat’s Una last year. Slaughter of milch cows is banned in all states except in Kerala and in parts of north-east India.

Kerala officially opposing the new law on “cattle business”: The Union government’s new notification banning the sale of cows and buffaloes for slaughter is a “fascist and anti-federal move” and the Centre can’t prepare a menu for the people of the country, Kerala’s Left government said on 27-05-2017, Friday[3]. “We will not allow the (central) government to enforce fascist policies of the RSS and other fringe outfits. Let it issue many such notifications, we will not follow them,” said Kerala’s agriculture minister VS Sunil Kumar. The Kerala Chief Minister’s Office also criticised the slaughter ban[4], saying “Cattle slaughter becomes illegal at a time when manslaughter happens in the name of cow”. In a series of tweets, it said, the new regulation “will rob lakhs of jobs, cripple leather industry”. It called the notification an “attack on our poor, dalits & farmers”. The CMO said food consumption of millions of people will be affected by the “clear attack on our plurality, the essence of India”. The Congress also criticised the Union government’s latest notification.

28-05-2017 beef-fest Kannur- HT photo

The introduction of law coincided with Ramzan and therefore against Islam: “It is against the Constitution of the country and infringes upon the right of citizens,” said MM Hassan, acting president of the state Congress. He said the timing of the notification makes it more intriguing, as the Muslim holy month of Ramzan was scheduled to begin on Friday. In Kerala, around 60% of the total meat consumed is beef. Not just Muslims and Christians, many Hindus are also fond of dishes made of the red meat. A raid by Delhi Police at the Kerala House kitchen in the national capital a couple of years ago had triggered outrage in the state. Many student organisations had conducted ‘beef festivals’ in protest against the police action. People in many states in the north-east also eat beef. “It is a very bad decision. We don’t agree to it and won’t implement it,” said Mizoram’s animal husbandry minister C Ngunlianchunga. Mhao, the owner of Taochi Enterprise, one of the biggest meat suppliers in the north-east, said: “I don’t think the rule will be applicable to the north-east. It will be chaotic and a body blow to business. Why are they digging into our plates?” The environment ministry this week notified a regulation under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 prohibiting sale of cattle through animal markets across the country. Regulating animal trade is a state business but animal welfare is a central subject, thereby providing the window for the ministry to notify the rule.

Democratic Youth Federation of India - cow-killing and beef eating Communists

DYFI national president Mohammed Riyaz, led the protest: Police in Kannur in north Kerala on 28-05-2017 (Sunday) booked 16 Youth Congress activists who slaughtered a cow in public and cooked its meat and distributed it[1]. The brazen act was committed in front of a huge crowd in Kannur Saturday during the ‘Beef Fest’ held by the Left and Congress parties in Kerala to protest against the Center’s ban[2]. “We will eat beef to show our protest against the central government. We want to tell this to Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” said DYFI national president Mohammed Riyaz, who led the protest[3].  Deccan Chronicle captioned apprpopriately[4], “Youth Congress conducts public cow slaughter in Kerala”, yet Congress has to reckon for the consequences[5]. Actually, how and why one gets an idea of “beaf-fest”, beef-the cow meat eating carnival is thought of and organized immediately? Why the choice of beef and not any other meat or flesh? Thus, the radical elements wanted to show off that it has been a communal protest and not secular or otherwise. An embarrassed Congress sought to distance itself, saying the party will not support anyone who has violated the law, but a Youth Congress activist who led the protest said he had no regrets[6]. They were charged under IPC Section 428 and section (ii) of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960[7]. Several youth groups of the ruling CPI (M)-led LDF and Congress-headed UDF opposition have organised these festivals to protest against the Centre’s recent decision to ban sale and purchase of cattle from animal markets for slaughter, a move criticised by several states. But Saturday (28-05-2017)’s slaughter seems to have backfired.

28-05-2017 beef-fest Kannur CPM minister participated

The CPI(M)-led DYFI and SFI were in the forefront of the protests: “The Hindu” reported as follows: “With every political party barring the BJP coming out against the Central notification banning sale of cattle for slaughter in animal markets, protests erupted in several parts of Kerala on Saturday, many of these places witnessing ‘beef festivals’ organised by student and youth activists. The CPI (M)-led DYFI and SFI were in the forefront of the protests, but the Opposition Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) was also in the fray, holding marches, burning effigies and organising public kitchens where beef was cooked and served to activists and passersby[8]. Among those who came out against the Central directive was Congress Working Committee (CWC) member A.K. Antony, who, while addressing a meeting to mark the 53rd death anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru, called upon party workers not to attach any importance to the Central notification and ‘tear it and throw it into the dustbin’[9].

28-05-2017 beef-fest Kannur-Bindu Krishna - Bhagwati Kuzh-beef

  • In Thiruvananthapuram, the agitation was led by the DYFI and SFI. Addressing activists, DYFI national president Mohamed Riyaz said, “We will cook beef and eat beef and also protest against the Central government. That is what we want to tell Narendra Modiji.”
  • In Kochi, the DYFI-SFI activists were joined by Tourism and Cooperation Minister Kadakampally Surendran and CPI (M) district secretary and former Rajya Sabha member P. Rajeev, who partook in the beef festival, the former accusing the Central government of cutting at the very root of people’s right to eat what they wanted. Youth Congress activists also took out a march against the Central measure.
  • At Kannur, Youth congress activists publicly butchered a cow to protest against the central notification while in Thodupuzha in Idukki district, protesters took out a march with the head of a buffalo[10].
  • In Kollam, Congress activists led by District Congress Committee (DCC) president Bindu Krishna cooked beef in front of the DCC office. The Centre, she said, had no right to interfere with the livelihood of lakhs of people. “This is nothing but a intrusion into the fundamental rights of the citizens of this country,” she said[11]. Ironically, this lady also participates in Bhagawati Amman festival to boil Pongal! So the Kerala secularism works differently. She may talk about Gandhi giving discourse about non-violence and also cook and eat beef.

The Hindu also added a photograph with the details: Minister for Tourism Kadakampally Surendran (right) and CPI(M) Ernakulam district secretaray P Rajeev participatin in a beef festival organised by SFI in front of Ernakulam Town Hall on Saturday to protest the Centre’s ban on sale and slaughter of cattle.

28-05-2017 beef-fest Kannur- 2

How long the antics, gimmicks and tricks could go on by the radicals and ideologists?: “Beef-fests are held to protest ban on sale of cattle for slaughtering cow in Kerala market” says news report[12]. The sale of cattle, cow-slaughter, sale of meat are different aspects, but, they try to confuse all without reading the Act properly[13]. In Tamilnadu, the DK used to perform “Unnum vradham” (eating penance) in front of or against the persons, who are engaded in “Unna vradham” (fasting)! Here, in Kerala, “the Go’s own country” and with 100% literacy, beef-eating festivals are held live not against any “non-beef eating festivals”, as if all meats are eaten, but, beef is not eaten. None would engage in prostitution, if prostitution is banned or restricted or regulated. I do not find anyone who protests against “closure of wineshops” drink! Therefore, if the CPIM and Mohammedan groups start doing antics of cooking beef on the roads, they can do all on the roads as a part of their demo. Perhaps, they want to repeat what the British tried to do that resulted in 1857. In other worrds, they are trying to create tension between the groups and start run rioting. With the ideological expertise and the subversive activities, they are capable of doing that.

Rahul condemn beef eating

Congress caught into dilemma of Cow-slaughter politics: Congress leader Mahathma Gandhi had been against Cow-slaughter and promoter of “Ramrajya”. However, Sonia Congress has become “secular” with the Mohammedan and Christian support. Sonia herself is seen as “Christian” and foreign by many Indians, though, rarely such views are publicized. Sharad Pawar, Jayallita and others openly named her as “Sonia Maino”. Recently, in UP, Congress badly lost its political power, with the rise of BJP with more than absolute majority. Thus, definitely, Congress cannot pay heavy price in this issue. Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday condemned the public slaughter of a calf in Kerala by Youth Congress workers and said the party did not support it[14]. “What happened in Kerala yesterday is thoughtless, barbaric and completely unacceptable to me and the Congress Party. I strongly condemn the incident,” Rahul said in a tweet[15]. Kamudi another local daily dubbed Rahul saying that youth congress members are brainless[16]. Whether they would be thoughtless or brainless[17], they had obviously colluded with the other radical elements of Kannur. Evidently, he was advised to do so, as otherwise, the Congress could loose whatever support it has in the “cow belt”, as now, it has lost ground there. Thus, in a face saving manner, the comdemnation has come from him, instead of Sonia Gandhi, the President![18]

Hurriyat reaction about terror-money, stone-pelting is women empowerment, and right of protest, shielding terrorists and accusing fighting forces against Jihadi terrorism are hallmark of Kashmiriyat! (2)

Stone pelting girls- Kashmir

The reaction of Hurriyat leaders against the media: After India Today aired a special investigative report where Hurriyat’s Provincial President (Geelani Faction) Naeem Khan was caught on camera admitting Pakistan is funding the violence in Kashmir Valley, India Today reporters were threatened[1]. After the video went on air, Naeem Khan came to India Today office in Srinagar and threatened India Today reporters[2]. He also asked them to take down the story and drop the expose. The Hurriyat also issued a notice to “Times Now” asking for damages, as the channel was carrying on debate and coverage over the issue with eminent panelists. JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik said on 19-05-2017 [Friday] that he would quit politics if media proved he had assets anywhere[3]. He also said he filed a police complaint against a New Delhi-based female journalist for allegedly barging into his bedroom without permission and appointment[4]. The sudden reaction against the media is intriguing, because, they are denying their anti-Indian and pro-Pakistan intentions and their continued role in instigating the violence in the valley sffecting the normal life of the people.

The son of Peer Abdul Rashid of Aloochi Bagh issued legal notice to Times-Now: The Mumbai based channel “Times-now”, according to the lawyer Advocate Amir Masoodi has disgraced his father Peer Abdul Rashid of Aloochi Bagh who he claimed has been trolled by netizens on social media for his alleged involvement in money laundering (Hawala)[5]. “My father no doubt is the senior leader of Hurriyat Conference led by Syed Ali Shah Geelani but that does not mean the channel in order to increase its TRP will defame him without any proof or evidence,” advocate Amir Masoodi told ‘CNS’. He claimed that his family including his sisters and mother are being humiliated for his father’s alleged involvement in money laundering as was claimed by Times Now during live debate on News Hour on May 6 at 9pm [11-05-2017]. “I have filed a defamation case against Managing Editor of the channel, Navika Kumar for defaming my father, let them prove in the court of law what they had alleged during debate. My question to the party is as to how they labeled my father as ISI agent and counted him in the list of money launders,” Masoodi added[6].

Stone pelting girls- Kashmir-3

Peer Abdul Rashid of Aloochi Bagh has definitely no other role to play – can all Indians believe?: Amir Masoodi while criticizing the channel for allegedly tarnishing the image of the people of great repute said such allegations need to be proved and if not they should be prosecuted as per the law. He said the allegations leveled against his father in live program are derogatory in nature and as such caused tremendous mental agony to his family. “I want to make it very much clear that if the allegations leveled against my father proved right he must be punished according to the law and in case the same proved wrong then I have no option than to approach the Apex Court,” he said. “You showed a piece of paper and claimed that it is a kind of leaked intelligence sharing in which some names were mentioned having links with Pakistani premier intelligence agency ISI for money laundering to Hurriyat Conference,” reads the legal notice. Notice further reads that “now saying all this you and your channel are liable for prosecution under defamation laws by which you would be liable to compensate for tarnishing his image for cheap TRP of your program.” So, Peer Abdul Rashid of Aloochi Bagh has definitely no other role to play – can all Indians believe?

Stone pelting girls- Kashmir-4

Kashmiri Women as Stone Pelters: It Is Not Just Anti-Militarism, It’s About Empowerment![7]: Anuradha Bhasin Jamwal[8] write-up on this issue makes one shocked as she tried to reduce to a woman issue suppressing the facts of terrorism, jihadi bred-killings and that of other women suffered nore than that of the ones described by her. The excerpts are as follows: “…..If in 2016, pellet shot and blinded Insha Malik was the most haunting image of Kashmir, in 2017 the summer has begun with the defining images of women and girls joining the men in pelting stones on security forces and police. On the face of it, it’s a giant leap. ………Afshan Ashique, a 21 year old football coach, was among the women who pelted stones. According to a news report, she did not intend to. It was only while she was moving, along with her team of 20 girls, towards the playground when stone pelting started. A cop mistaking them for stone pelters, began slapping one of the girls, the report adding, provoking Afshan and her team to pelt stones……..  In 1989-90, women vehemently opposed the burqa diktat that right wing organizations like Dukhtaran-e-Millat imposed, despite incidents of throwing paint to embarrass women who refused to cover their face and an alleged case of acid throwing. Some women however chose to adopt the burqa as a way of life. The diktat did not last long but peak militancy period carved new roles for women in the Valley…….”. It is surprising that she could not see or notice any other thing, while discuss this issue!

Stone pelting women- Kashmir-1

It is empowerment for Kshmir women to pelt stones and shield the terrorists[9]: Anuradha Bhasin Jamwal continued, “….. This activism in the last 27 years of history of insurgency has by and large been shaped around their domestic roles as mothers, sisters, daughters and wives – in invoking or discouraging the men and boys in their families to pick up the gun and join ranks of militants, in acting as shields for the men during raids and cordons and in seeking justice for the men of the family killed, tortured of disappeared in custody…… This female assertion was more a part of domestic activism, inspired by the concerns of safety, security and oppression of their family members, especially men; not about their own safety and their own aspirations…… Even in cases of sexual assault and rapes, the patriarchal nature of protests that sought to bracket rapes within the paradigm of honour or stigmatized the victim, the women has been largely invisible. However, there has been an evolutionary trajectory of women’s involvement in public and political spheres that leads to the present day image of school and college girls pelting stones……. Signs of marginal change were already visible though in very passive forms.  The accused in Shopian rapes and murders were men in uniform as opposed to the Tabinda Gani rape case of 2006, where the accused were four poor labourers, two of them Kashmiri natives. ……In the last one decade, an increasing number of women have begun donning the head scarves and hijabs, which were otherwise unknown in the Valley……. While some of them are inspired by religion or peer pressures, many young girls admit that it was a conscious assertion of their different identity, making head scarves a symbol of the resistance against the oppression of another identity. …….. The fire is ignited. After a college girl was injured during the street protests, it inspired many more to come out, giving this assertion a new booster shot……”

Stone pelting women- Kashmir-2

The apologia Anuradha Bhasin Jamwal for “Burhan Wani and beyond”[10]: About “Burhan Wani”, her writing has been more apologetic than reality, as he suppressed the facts conveniently worrying about the rights of the terrorists and their supporters, forgeting the killed and suffered victims of such terror. Her abstract has been as follows: “The anger of the Kashmiri people in the face of the Indian establishment’s endeavour to smother their legitimate political aspirations is understandable. Since 2008, attempts by civilians to organise themselves peacefully against their oppression or even for their day-to-day needs, including water, electricity and jobs, have been met with brute force, even murders. Post 2010, Kashmir has moved in circles from periods of unrest to calm and then back to unrest. Burhan Wani’s death was just a small spark that was needed to break the pretence of normalcy thrust on its people. The government should realise that the stone pelters on the streets are neither Pakistanis nor paid agents. Kashmir, today, needs an open-minded political intervention that is unconditional”. Note, she coolly asserts that “The government should realise that the stone pelters on the streets are neither Pakistanis nor paid agents”, then, how these educated elite could safeguard the interests of the government? She does not bother about the Hindus who have been driven out, killed, women raped etc., but, continue to write only about other things. It is intriguing to note why and how they make to think in that way, because, the simple reading of their articles make others to realize that they have been writing in that way only with ingrained ideology, as they always suppress the facts of the other side.

Hurriyat, terror-money, stone-pelting and right of protest, shielding terrorists and accusing fighting forces against Jihadi terrorism! (1)

Hurriyat leaders - Geelani,........ ,Naeem Khan invoking terror

Burhan Wani was neutralized on July 8, 2016 and the stone-pelting violence started: Ten months after mass protests and stone pelting on security forces began in Kashmir valley following the encounter of Hizbul Mujahideen leader Burhan Wani, the National Investigation Agency has started a probe against hard-line separatist leaders. In its annual report for 2016-17, MHA, while talking about security situation in J&K, has stated that 2016 has seen a change in Pak tactics following strategy of superimposition of militancy over “civil resistance” through radicalization by vested interest groups and social media[1]. In fact, the students of schools and colleges were mobilized, asked them to be positioned at points, so that the terrorists could attack and maximum damage could be caused for the security and other para-military forces. MHA says that after Burhan Wani was neutralized on July 8, 2016 last year, “Hurriyat leaders were involved in fomenting the trouble in the shape of organizing protests and forcing the shopkeepers to shut their shops through their dictates of protest calendars.” MHA says that since the advent of militancy in J&K (in 1990), 13,936 civilians and 5,043 security forces personnel have lost their lives there[2]. Defense minister Arun Jaitley also said on 19-05-2017 [Friday] that the fact that Hurriyat leaders were taking money from Pakistan was already known in “informed circles”, and called it a conspiracy against not just India but also the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

Hurriyat leaders - Geelani, ,Naeem Khan invoking terror

Amounts paid to the stone-pelters: The separatist leaders, who had recently called for boycotting elections in the Valley and have disrupted normal life for almost a year now, distribute the funds received from Pakistan to the stone-pelters for attacking security forces. In spite of the young stone-pelters getting affected, their parents and elders have not prevented them from doing so. Officials say that these stone-pelters, who don’t have any other sources of income, are paid Rs 500 to Rs 1000 every day [15,000 to 30,000 per month] for disrupting law and order arrangements or operations carried out by security forces against the terrorists or wave Pakistani flags. It could be noted that more girls started participating in such stone-pelting, implying that the extremist and radical women organizations have also been involved. When sex-scandal rocked the valley, the same women organizations kept quite without raising any issue, as the terrorists themselves were involved. Here, their god or religion did not question such inhuman, unethical and immoral sexual criminal activities. According to an estimate by Intelligence Bureau, there are around 250 terrorists active in Jammu and Kashmir presently, most of them local boys. A large number of them have joined Hizbul Mujahideen in past 10 months.

Hurriyat leaders - Geelani, ,Naeem Khan RHS-etc

Year-wise data on J&K violence: Since the advent of militancy in J&K, 13,936 civilians and 5053 security personnel have been killed till December 31, 2016. In 2016 , the year Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani was killed, 150 terrorists were killed, 82 security personnel martyred, 15 civilians killed in 322 total incidents. In 2015 , 108 terrorists, 17 civilians, 39 security personnel killed in 208 incidents. Yet, the parents, elders and other responsible people of J & K have never condemned such violent killings and loss of innocent lives. In the name of religion and jihad, they have bee co-operating and collaborating with the terrorists and cross-border jihadi violence. The intrusion of terrorists in the residential areas clearly proves that they are continuously helped by the local people. Moreover, now the shielding of stone-pelters in those specific areas prove the nexus among all the involved groups.

Hurriyat leaders - Geelani, ,etc

The Hurriyat leaders mentioned in the PE: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) registered a Preliminary Enquiry (PE) against Kashmiri separatist leaders, including Syed Ali Shah Geelani, for allegedly receiving funds from Lashkar-e-Taiba’s chief Hafiz Saeed to create unrest in the Valley[3]. A similar PE registered last year by the NIA against Geelani, to probe his links to two bank accounts through which money was allegedly routed to create unrest in the Kashmir Valley, drew a blank[4]. The NIA is yet to find any evidence against him in the said case. An NIA official said investigation into last year’s PE was continuing.

  1. Naeem Khan, who was seen on television during a sting operation by India Today TV ‘confessing’ to have received money from Pakistan-based terror groups;Others named in the fresh PE are[5]
  2. Farooq Ahmed Dar alias ‘Bitta Karate’(Chairman of JKLF); and
  3. Gazi Javed Baba of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, an NIA spokesperson said. A PE is a precursor to an FIR (first investigation report), the first step to launching a probe.

The separatists were allegedly receiving funds from Hafiz Saeed to carry out subversive activities, including pelting stones at security forces, damaging public property and burning schools and other government establishments, the NIA spokesperson said[6]. The NIA has also taken cognisance of the news item related to the recording of conversations between a TV reporter and leaders of separatist groups operating in the Kashmir Valley in this regard, he said. “We had information from multiple sources regarding the involvement of Pakistan in funding the unrest in the Valley. The sting operation also suggests so. A team visited Srinagar on Friday and began a probe. We will question all those named in the PE including Geelani,” said the official. On August 2016, NIA had summoned Geelani’s son Nayeem Zafar Geelani for questioning him regarding investigation into foreign funds allegedly being used to finance protests in Kashmir.

Stone pelting women- Kashmir-2

How black and hawala money has been routed through to help Jihadi terrorism in J & K: After registering a PE, an NIA team has already reached valley to begin its investigation and question Geelani and other Hurriyat leaders[7]. The agency has also taken cognizance of a TV sting operation where some separatist leaders are taking about funding from across the border[8]. Some of them can be heard bragging about how funds are routed including Dubai route or hawala to them in the sting operation. Sources said that they will check the bank accounts of suspects, use of dummy companies for transfers from Pakistan or via a third country, hawala operators to ascertain the exact amount received from Hafiz Saeed and Pakistani agencies. Definitely, the local officials of various departs have been aiding and abetting the terrorists and perhaps, they are also taken care of by the terrorists, as they enough funds. Officials added that only when they get strong evidence on funding from Pakistan, they will turn the PE into a regular case. Intelligence officials say that the amount received by separatists to keep active the turmoil in Kashmir from Pakistan in last one year could be in several hundred crores. According to senior officials at the North Block, the funding from Pakistan, which is directly monitored by Pak’s spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), comes via gulf countries, Saudi Arabia and other places before it reaches to places like Anantnag, Pulwama, Kupwara and Srinagar etc.

Hurriyat Dalal nexus - in terror-jihad.jpg

Singhvi termed as “extremely serious”: AICC spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi termed as “extremely serious” the allegations that Hurriyat leaders received funds from across the border and called for strong action as it involves national security[9]. He also hit out at the central and the Jammu and Kashmir governments saying there has never been such a rapid, accelerated and tragic decline in governance in the state as has been in the last 36 months[10]. “It is extremely serious. It is gross, brazen and blatant and deserves the strongest action in the shortest possible time and in the most effective manner. This undermines national security directly and completely,” he said. He, however, trained his guns on the BJP saying its leaders are preaching on Kashmir even when they have been in power both at the Centre and the state, and alleged that there has been lack of governance in the state under them. “What we are seeing everyday is homilies, preachings, lectures, sermons being given by none less than high government functionaries to which the entire country, in a bemused, amused manner asks itself and the nation asks that whom are you giving lectures to,” he said. “Be it casualties, violence, lack of governance, lack of decision making, lack of co-ordination, security scenario different departments and ministers pulling in directions, no consistency of policy etc. etc. In 36 months we have seen the most rapid decline,” he said. Singh said the Congress has also been in power for 10 years in Kashmir amid external infiltrations, “but never before have we seen this kind of tragic state of affairs which makes the heart of every Indian bleed”.

Hurriyat Dalal nexus - in terror

Why the Farooq Anbullah-Arunthati Roy types always speak against India in the context of Kashmir?: Farooq Abdullah, though got elected through the recent elections that were boycotted by the terrorists and jihadi separatists, has chosen to question the government instead of condemning the killing of secuirity forces by the jihadis. His son has also been so anxious about one stone-pelter tied to a jeep, to teach him a lesson, ignoring the main issue.  Why they should support the terrorists and jihadi separatists is intriguing.  Farooq mostly lives in England and comes to India, then and there, unless, he is given some ministership or such assignment. Whenever, he appears here, he makes such sensational statements and disappear, just like the category of Arnthati Roy. Of course, they have bred many such ideological clones to tae care of the propaganda, turning every issue against India, being Indians and writing in Indian newspapers.

The way Sathyaraj and Tarun Vijay opposed and made them render apology – The Dravidian racism, linguistic fascism and Ideological negationism work faithfully!

April 22, 2017

The way Sathyaraj and Tarun Vijay opposed and made them render apology –  The Dravidian racism, linguistic fascism and Ideological negationism work faithfully!

Ragavendra swamy exploitation by dravidians

Sathyaraj regrets, whole-heartedly regrets, apologizes or worries about business? : Has Sathyaraj really regretted, whole-heartedly regretted or apologized as the leading Indian media describes differently by various expressions? He has scripted his reply carefully after meticulous preparation. Then, he sat casually before a video and read out such prepared script for circulation as planned. Thus, nothing has come out spontaneously, emotionally and faithfully with any commitment. As media interpret there has not been any social concern, public interest or secular credentials exhibited in such scripted speech. Nine years ago, he did do like that. He poured his dirty words of hatred in all possible derogatory way in front of other leading actors like Rajinikanth, Kamal Hassan etc. From their facial expressions themselves, his unexpected verbose with dirty words was understood and could be realized even today, by anyone who knows Tamil. Therefore, who is arm-twisting whom, can also be understood by the Indian public.  As the cinemawalas claim very often that their profession should be considered as “industry”, then, Indians, as consumers have every right to receive what they want and what they do not want. No political party or organization need to suggest, induce or impose any view on them, as if  they and the media alone, know everything and advise.

C N Annadurai acted as Guru of Shivaji

How commercial considerations work with the media, cine-world and political ideologists to fool fans and consumers: Evidently, the media that has close nexus with the cine-field and the associated business interests tried to play game with the dramatized episode of opposition to and regret expressed by the Periyarist, atheist and radical actor Sathyaraj. “Of course, only Sathyaraj won’t be affected by this threat”, Indian express exposed with candid. Then who would be the affected? The actor said he, “…….does not want a movie made on such a grand scale by the hard work of thousands labourers and technicians to go waste”[1]. So only cine-field workers, technicians and experts are so rare species in India and the idiot fans could go on pay hundreds and thousands to watch the movies. Is this way labour killing labour under the neo-profiteering way of exploiting senses of consumers, as they cannot face losses. Indian know what profit they got by producing pictures on Periyar, Ambedkar and others and producing other “masala” and useless films. Yet, these actors talk about Periyar, Ambedkar at one side and pit them against others, as if they have been so intelligent to decide the future of Indians. With religion, language, race, racism, racialism, linguistic fanaticism and associated degrading factors, they have and have been only dividing Indian society by all means. Incidentally, the day Sathyaraj expressed his regrets, Tarun Vijay faced opposition from the fringe elements of Pondicherry University, in spite of apology rendered!

Tarun Vijay visit to PU opposed 21-04-2017

ASU and SFI members raise slogans against Tarun Vijay for his remarks on south Indians at Pondicherry University; police evict the protesters[2]: Interestingly, when the Dravidian hardcore radical Sathyaraj was regretting his abuse against the Kannadigas, who also happened to be “Dravidians” according his ideology, Tarun Vijay was opposed at Pondicherry University, as he called the South Indians were dark. Tension prevailed in Pondicherry University after students belonging to various unions raised slogans and vehemently registered their protest against the visit of Tarun Vijay, former BJP MP, to deliver a talk organised by the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarti Parishad (ABVP) in the School of Management on the campus. Tarun Vijay arrived at the auditorium and when the function was about to begin, students belonging to Ambedkar Students Union (ASU) and the Students Federation of India (SFI) raised slogans against him for his alleged racist remarks against south Indians recently. A posse of police personnel forcibly removed the protesting students from the auditorium and closed the doors. Tarun Vijay, escorted by the police through another entrance, delivered his talk. Meanwhile, a large number of students from various departments gathered outside the School of Management raising slogans against the university authorities and the police alleging high handedness. At one stage, a section of students took out a procession to the administrative building and laid siege to the office of the Vice-Chancellor (officiating) Anisa Basheer Khan. Ms. Khan held talks with a section of student representatives following which the protest was withdrawn[3].  As puducherry, Union Territory has been within Tamilnadu, the issue went unnoticed, though, the issue is inter-related.

C N Annaduai, Karu, MGR, EVR all acting

Why the Dravidians could not live together or getting long unitely, ever since they identified by themselves as “Dravidians”?: If all the south Indians are dark or black, how Sathyaraj could look fair enough to act in movies, that too with fair heroines attracting fans!  No producer, director or hero introduced any heroine from Africa, as they are also Dravidians. He talks racism and all in the name of Periyarism etc., how then his skin colour has been fair? Similarly, the people of other states, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhrapradesh do not take the hypothesis of Caldwell or the Dravidian parties that they are also Dravidians like that of people of Tamilnadu. During the times of Justice Party itself, the non-Tamil people started moving away from the Tamils because of their linguistic fanaticism and racial parochialism. When EVR started dominating the party affairs, many disassociated and left the party, because of his authoritarian attitude, intolerant posture and adamant standpoint. Then, the Dravidar Kazhgm was started, but had to work within Tamilnadu with the fringe and radical elements.  Again, within that party also, all was not going on well and therefore, Anna broke away from Periyar and started DMK.  MGR could not be with Karunanidhi because of his corruption. Thus, AIADMK was started by him. Now, both the parties DMK and AIADMK have been in doldrums. This has been the exclusive, separatist and intolerant attitude of the Dravidian politicians and their ideology. Calling themselves “Dravidians” of the same race, why they could not get long within themselves or adjusting with each other is not known.

Ragavendra swamy exploitation by dravidians-mutt attacked at Erode

Can Dravidian actors go on abuse others and get away with their rhetoric?: Even today (after this incidence), for earning money, the Tamil actors have been ready to act in Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada language movies. Calling themselves as “Pacca Tamilians”, they act in Hindi movies also delivering Hindi dialogue. We have to note how others follow their ideology strictly in this regard. Already, there has been an exception, Raghava Lawrence has been portraying themselves as a staunch devotee of “Raghavendra”, who belongs to Karnataka, as asserted by Sathyaraj. Of course, these actors have been very poor in history and hence they get away with what they talk in Tamil to appease the crowd and get claps. Ironically, Sri Raghavendra was born and brought up in Tamilnadu and lived in Kumbakonam as Peetathipati. Yet, as the Dravidian protagonists have not been interested in history, but mythistory like “Aryans”, “Dravidians” etc., they always talk the same stuff to rouse passion and now also Sathyaraj asserts that he supports for Sri Lanka cause and die as Tamilian! As pointed out above, as these actors and politicians have been earning crores of money from the poor and middle-class people / Indians of South India, the people have to question their duplicity, expose their double standards and even boycott their films, if they continue to spread lies in this way based on myth, mythistory, race, racism, racialism, linguistic fanaticism and so on.

Congress, BJP and the so-called Hindu terror-III

July 17, 2010

Congress, BJP and the so-called Hindu terror-III

Nothing new in the stories of HT: Headlines Today has not found out anything new, as now I have found out that it is just rehashing the stuff that was already circulated during November-December 2008. Perhaps, HT channel was not at that time or not popular. In www.indiainteracts.com, I have posted the following how the Congress colluded with the media to plant such half-baked, sensational stuff before the elections.

None of the links work today!: “The NDTV, NEWS-X and CNN-IBN have been also adopting the same pattern blowing hot and cold’, thus I wrote on 16-11-2008, but today (17-07-2010), when I tried none of the above links are working with the following message:

Therefore, as readers and Indiand we cannot keep quite for this type of propaganda.

HT picks up the old stuff in July 2010: Thus, it is evident that the TV-channels, particularly, TIMES-NOW had removed the stuff put on in the websites subsequently for the best reasons known to to them. Now, Headlines Today rehashes the same stuff, with the claim that they had exclusively accessed material – in the form of video tapes and witness accounts available with investigators – that puts elements within the Sangh Parivar under the scanner[1].

Were Hindus fools to colloboate with SIMI to bomb Muslim targets or SIMI was so idiotic to help Hinduss? Ironically, in the narco tests, Purohit says Muslim groups helped him bomb SIMI office in Malegaon[2] and the ATS was taken aback and tried to suppress the facts. Not only that even the RDX was obtained through the Jihadi terrorists across the borders through PK and IOK. Sankaracharya was reportedly helped in getting the RDX, as he was having influence over POK Jihadis.

How Bangladeshi nationals including oned woman detained turned to Hindu terrorists? The INDIATIMES NEWS NETWORK reported as follows: Ajmer blast: People detained for questioning, 12 Oct 2007, 0851 hrs IST, INDIATIMES NEWS NETWORK:

“NEW DELHI: Police has detained 3-4 people for questioning in its probe into the Ajmer dargah blasts, Times Now reported. According to the channel, police is also working upon the sketches of the suspects. Police sources said that detentions were made based upon the suspicious movements of these individuals. Two among those detained are Bangladeshi nationals and one is a woman”. What happened to those Bangaladeshis?

How the same Digvijay Singh and media speak the same stuff after three years? Digvijay Singh accused Sangh Parivar as follows in 2008:

Digvijay Singh equates VHP, Bajrang Dal to SIMI

Nov 14, 2008 http://news.outlookindia.com/item.aspx?633203

Bhopal, Nov 14 (PTI) Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh equated right wing organisations Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) to the banned Students Islami Movement of India (SIMI).

“These (SIMI, VHP and Bajrang Dal) outfits were all involved in similar anti-national activities,” Singh, AICC General Secretary alleged.

Talking informally to reporters, Singh said that whether it was ‘Muslim terrorism’ or ‘Hindu terrorism’, both worked to harm the nation’s security.

When asked if the Bajrang Dal should be banned, he said that it would be much better if the RSS which was the fountainhead of the Bajrang Dal was outlawed.

Singh said that there were only five recognised Peeths of Shankaracharyas in the country but the VHP had made many Shankaracharyas.

“The Maharashtra ATS should be congratulated for exposing the role of right wing terrorists in the Malegaon blasts,” Singh said.

The former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister said that he alone in the Congress is capable to take on the Sangh parivar by talking consistently of Hindu terrorism, he was defending other state Congress leaders who are mum on right wing leaders.

Now, again he comes into picture and talks nonsence in the TV-channels[3]. Now, He claimed that the first instance of Hindu terror came to light in Bhopal in December 2002. During his tenure as Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Singh said that the administration managed to track some of the sleeper cells and individuals involved in these activities, including bomb-making[4].  He also alleged that Madhya Pradesh Government, ‘for some strange reason’, closed investigation in two high-profile murder cases of Sangh functionaries Sunil Joshi and Ramchandra Kalangsara.

Conclusion: I just reproduce the conclusion as follows, which is applicable now also: The collusion of ATS with the media has been evident and it is very dangerous in the secular context of India. Moreover, the twisting, distorting and  misinterpreting of news reported and reporting with blatant lies, as a careful viewer, reader and observer could note from the media coverage, is unethical, immoral and against any journalistic code. Sensational reporting could not go to the extent of scandalous, as the politicization of the issue has not been touched upon, because of the elections. The political leaders could talk anything and get away with it. As the PM responded on the Malegaon blast on board in 2006, he could not keep silence about what has been going on now in the same issue. The media has tried to saffronize the terror from green. Ironically, the allegations of the saffron terror is inspired from the green and even purchased from green, if the media reports are to be taken as “gospel truth” or “Koranic revelation”.

If the Hindu ideologists start interpreting that as the PM has been a Sikh, the defence minister a Christian and the entire media has been Christian and Mohammedan and consistently anti-Hindu, these things are happening, how the others would take it? Of course, above all the Sonia factor has been there! Now all the secular elements have been keeping quite or playing cautious role realizing the grave situation, as it might misfire in any direction.

Anyway, a common man, a careful viewer, critical reader and sensitive observer could easily point out the double standards of the media, politicians, ideologists and other secular intellectuals. Though, very often, people are blamed for forgetting the past, just-past events, wherever, the impact has been there, they actually do not forget and such imprints continue to make them sensitive. Therefore, the hypocritical, duplicitous and two-faced standards of any discipline would be exposed. Hence, it is better, they behave responsibly, instead of treading a dangerous path of manipulations, meddling and even fraudulent ways.
