Gandhi Congress conducted Cow-slaughter in public in God’s own country Kerala with highest litracy and Beef-fest also! (1)

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]

Hate speech, Indian media and secular parties – Why Modi is targeted maximum?

April 1, 2014

Hate speech, Indian media and secular parties – Why Modi is targeted maximum?

 

Why Modi is targeted maximum?: During the March 2014, the Congress leaders have vehemently targeted and attacked Narendra Modi with very harsh words and expressions in Hindi countering his comments and as well as heaping new abusive rhetoric. Modi has been targeted by all comparing him Hitler, Stalin, Pol-pot, Coebelles and so on. He is repeatedly mentioned as killer, murderer, butcher, man-eater[1] and what not. Perhaps, no other Indian politician has been targeted like this than Modi. Whenever Modi spoke, it was telecast immediately, the comments against his speech was recorded from the opponent parties like Congress, SJD, etc and broadcast. In fact, the comments of Nitish and his spokesman were shown as if they cover point by point.

 

“Chaiwala” aspire to become PM: The “Tea-vendor aspiring to becoming PM” attracted the detractors maximum, thus   In November 2013, Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Naresh Agarwal[2] ridiculed that “tea-vendor cannot become a PM”. And in January 2014, the arrogant and bigheaded Mani Shakar Iyer sarcastically retorted that if he comes to their venue, he can serve tea – Aiyar had mocked Modi’s prime ministerial ambitions and said a place would be identified for the Gujarat chief minister to distribute tea at AICC . When asked, when he would apologize for making such personal remarks, refused[3]. Thus, the “Chaiwala”, Chai-bechnewala, etc., promoted “chai pe charcha” attracting masses and evidently the foreign media[4]. Thus, this obviously made the rival political parties to counter. Though, they have been questioning Modi-economics, Gujarat Model of development etc., they are confined to the elite and not interested among others like “chaiwala”.

 

Many Congress leaders joining BJP rattled Congress[5]: At the top level, Congress has been the most affected, reflecting its image of a sinking ship in these elections. MP’s  Jagadambika Pal from Domariaganj, D. Purandeshwari (daughter of TDP founder N.T.Rama Rao) from Vishakhapatnam, Rao Inderjit Singh from Gurgaon, Vitthal Radadiya from Porbandar and Satpal Maharaj from Pouri Garhwal are some of the big names to have quit the party to join BJP. Sanjay Kaka Patil of the NCP and Rajesh Verma of the BSP have also joined the saffron party. In far flung Arunachal Pradesh, strongman Gegong Apang has also switched over to the BJP. The first big name to change affiliation was Ram Vilas Paswan of the Lok Janshakti Party. Thus, “Congress – sinking ship” discussion openly came out.

 

 

Modi-critics joining BJP: Pramod Muthalik, the Ram Sena chief joined BJP, but immediately, his membership was denied[6]. Ironically, when his followers attacked Pub-girls that created controversy, he was targeted by the media for his medieval mindset, hooliganism and Talibanism. At that time, he criticized the BJP and other leaders in his interviews given to the media. The worst critic of JD (U) Sabir Ali also joined BJP, when he was expelled from the party, but within a day, his membership was cancelled / annuled[7]. Of course, it was reported that he himself wanted to hold, till something was resolved[8].  Of course, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, the Muslim face of BJP opposed his entry. Interestingly, all are happening within a week.

 

M J Akabar – a critic turned BJPwala: In some cases, those who abused Modi have joined BJP and eating their words. Thus, when M. J. Akbar joined BJP and nominated as its spokesman, what he told about Modi earlier haunted and dunted[9]:  “Modi is an ideologue, with a difference. The difference is hysteria. It is an edgy hysteria, which can mesmerise; and it easily melts into the kind of megalomania that makes a politician believe that he is serving the larger good through a destructive frenzy against a perceived enemy. In Hitler’s case, the enemy was the Jew; in Modi’s case the enemy is the Muslim. Such a politician is not a fool; in fact, he may have a high degree of intellect. But it is intellect unleavened by reason, and untempered by humanism”. Now, he has to defend Modi as a Muslim or secular journalist or spokesman of BJP itself!

 

How and why Modi is dubbed as Hiter: Advani sidelined, Murali Manohar Joshi was shifted from Varanasi facilitating Modi to contest, Jaswant Singh, the veteran leader was expelled when he tried to contest from the same constituency for which he was denied ticket and other events made critics and detractors of Modi to accuse him of dictatorship, one-upmanship and so on. Perhaps, this emboldens the Congress and other non-BJP parties to criticize him as Hitler and so on. But, after all, this is their internal matter and other parties need not worry, as they have more problems of dissatisfaction, dissent, and defection than BJP. Yet, they and of course, media try to criticize BJP.

 

17-years coalition partner becomes the worst critic: BJP and JD (S) had been fighting elections for the past 17 years and suddenly, when Modo was declared as the PM candidate, Nitish broke away from the NDA. This created a lot of heat between the partners. Once Nitish praised Modi for his governance, but now he started criticizing him. On March 4, 2014 Nitish Kumar[10] called Modi “a follower of (German dictator Adolf) Hitler and Goebbels. After Sonia, perhaps, Nitish has been the worst attacker of Modi. He called Modi “a follower of (German dictator Adolf) Hitler and Goebbels.”  Here, Goebbles was the Nazi propagandist Paul Joseph Goebbels.  But, in spite of multi-crore, mega-crore scams and many corrupt practices, Rahul and Sonia go on claim their virtues and none questioned them for their vices.

 

Secular historians belive that Modi cannot function as Hitler: Ramachandara Guha, wrote[11], “His more alarmist critics speak of Modi as an Indian Hitler or Mussolini. In fact, a politician the Gujarat chief minister resembles more, at least in his personal style, is the late Hugo Chavez. To be sure, their political ideologies and economic models are at variance. Even so, Modi is akin to Chavez in presenting himself as a lone outsider taking on the Establishment, in his fusion of his State with his self, and in the demonization of his opponents”. After discussing at lengh, he concludes[12], “ But to worry about the return of the Emergency or an era of ‘fascism’ is to succumb to a premature and unfortunate alarmism. It may be that in May 2014 we shall have an arrogant and sectarian prime minister instead of the weak and incompetent prime minister we now have. But Indian democracy, not to speak of India itself, will survive.”.

 

Rahul compared Modi with Hitler: On March 7, 2014, Rahul indirectly attacked Modi comparing Hitler and Gandhi[13] i.e, Hiler used to shout but not Gandhi at a rally in Aurangabsad, Maharastra( महात्मा गांधी और हिटलर की तुलनाकरतेहुए राहुल गांधी ने कहा कि जर्मन तानाशाह चिल्लाता था क्योंकि उसमें विश्वास का अभाव था। लेकिन क्या गांधीजी कभी चिल्लाए, नहीं चिल्लाए क्यों कि उनमें विश्वास था।).In another Maharashtra town this morning, Mr Gandhi told a young audience at an engineering college, “My becoming or not becoming PM does not matter. What is most important is that everyone here, specially women and youth in country, feel that this is their own country.” Here too, he talked of love. And Mr Modi, again without naming him. The German dictator Hitler, Mr Gandhi said, shouted because he lacked confidence. But Mahatma Gandhi did not need to shout. “There is no need for saying things aggressively. You can say it with love. Many people will be with you,” he said. However, suddenly these sites[14] start disappearing!

 

Chaiwala, Chowkidar to Hitler – the changing criticism of Congress: On march 10, 2014 Rahul compared Modi with Hitler and also alleged the he stole the land of the farmers[15]. Rahul , without naming Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, launched a blistering attack, comparing Modi to Adolf Hitler and mocking him by saying the country does not need a chowkidar (watchman). Speaking at public meeting here Deoli in Tonk district of Rajasthan on Tuesday, he hinted at Modi when he said: “Adolf Hitler thought people had no knowledge and he himself knew everything.” Hitler was another leader who only spoke of himself and made tall claims, Rahul  said.“A true leader does not lecture his people but goes among them and listens to them. A true leader, like Mahatma Gandhi, does not have any ghamand (arrogance),” Lambasting the BJP leader, he said what was happening in Gujarat was chori as land belonging to farmers were being snatched for select industrial houses[16].

 

After Massod threatening BJP lists out Hate-speeches of Congresswalas: BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi who read out a list of comments made by the Congress leadership including the infamous “Maut ke Saudagar” used by Sonia Gandhi said the party has negatively drawn comparisons between Mr. Modi and Adolf Hitler by  Rahul Gandhi,  demon king Ravan by Salman Khurshid and has also called him “Lahu Purush” by Manish Tewari[17]. “This goes on to show what kind of atmosphere the Congress wants in the country. They do not want to fight the election on the issue of governance, development etc., and have deviated from dignity and decorum that are hallmarks of a democracy,” Mr. Trivedi said.

 

Modi a “combination of Hitler and Stalin”: From the land of God’s own country, on March 26, 2014 at Kozhikode, Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala tapped on the anxieties of the high-range farmer community with regard to the Kasturirangan report, pressed the Congress party line for the need for secular politics and called Narendra Modi a “combination of Hitler and Stalin”, but spared no word about the price rise and corruption scams trailing the UPA 2 government[18]. Thus, he excelled his cong-masters to criticize Modi!

 

Do not allow Modi to become PM: The non-BJP parties used cry that they would oppose the communal BJP at any cost. The APP like parties just like Communists shoult that they oppose both BJP and Congress. Of course, the so-celled third front, federal front etc., are also scream that they oppose both BJP and Congress dubbing them as communal. Thus, the secular and communal debate has become useless now. Some interpret that Congress has cleverly posed caste against communalism by assuring that they support reservation in the private sector also. BJP doubted that Congress and Communists would again come together to oppose them[19]. Immediately, A. K. Antony hinted at the possibility of the formation of a fresh “secular” front to keep BJP out of power[20].
