How can anyone see anything remotely anti-Hindu in this? Or anti-anything else except maybe majority bullying? Those who can must be hatefully blinkered folks filled with contempt for everything in India, its real people, their culture and languages! I found this to be an eminently sensible piece. It is not anti-Sanskrit even, just in favour of an equitable policy. It's the right way to read the education scenario, minus coloured lenses and hatred. Thank you.

As usual with the usual suspects, dense terminology masks prejudice. The usal catechisms of Aryan supermacy, Brahmin language, tool of control etc are repeated. These crap-distributors basically have one agenda - the supremacy of English in national discourse. The tool - divide and rule on basis of Tamil vs. Sanskrit vs. any no. of categories of division - caste tags, region tags etc. The playbook is colonial, the frameworks gladden the hearts of long-dead Europeans.

The small mercies - thye don't dare write in plain English, for fear they'll be exposed. So obscurity of message defeats them! On second thoughts, they may be talking to themselves, like Hamlet.

VNKM (#1),

While UPA was at helm, Katju was a Villian to many. From nowhere he has become a 'Hero' and even the media forgot this man called us "presstitude' Strange are the ways of some self styled gentlemen!!!

1. "Presstitute" is not motor mouth Katju's but Gen VK Singh's contribution to the English language.
2. I have asked the same question in reverse. viz.

Why are all those who defended motor mouth Katju's FoE in writing an article in The Hindu calling on the electorate not to vote for one individual now castigating his latest outburst.

In any case the two are not the same. In the first instance motor mouth, holding a quasi-judicial post, has interfered in a political issue. Would it be acceptable for a judge or governor etc to write such an article. In the second case, we are talking about "omerta" a code of silence in which judges do not speak about the wrongdoings of their sanctified brethren.

Be that as it may, Katju has repeatedly demonstrated his unfitness for high office. He should be invited to retire so that he can then exercise his FoE as a private individual without being constrained by propriety.

The Palestine under Hamas represents a regressive past where civil liberties are curbed, women are denied freedom and people are denied the right to imagine and believe in any faith other than one.

INDIA can choose to tie up with ISRAEL or be neutral but there is no way a SECULAR, POLYTHEIST INDIA can ever be supporting the Barbarian HAMAS led palestine or ISIS led Iraq. The Verdict of 2014 is clear and unambigous and there is no way India should support the jehadists and it is shame that some here want to support a group (Hamas) that even Prophet would have disowned if alive.

For all those who quote Mahatma Gandhi and want us to support Palestine and Hamas, Here is a question - please answer :

Mahatma Gandhi was lifelong supporter of prohibition and wanted a blanket ban on all kind of alcoholic consumption and he passionately worked on this agenda. If you want to quote MKG to oppose ties with Israel, why dont you also demand prohibition and complete shut down of all bars and distilleries? OUTLOOK which is obsessed with Palestine can set an example and ask its honourable editor VM to be a tetotaller. Can you?

Moral is - You cannot use the excuse of a leader's misreading of one issue decades back to frame a stand on current political issue where one player has no interest in India's security.

OUTLOOK is also guitly of the crime of selective promotion of languages. Why is that we dont have any vernacular/South Indian edition of OUTLOOK? Why only Hindi and English? INDIA TODAY is doing a Tamil version for over a decade. 

So dear OUTLOOK start cleaning yourself by first apologising for no other language versions of your weekly. Apology is very much required since your competitor one of them (India Today) has been doing it successfully.   Launch OUTLOOk editions in all the languages that you mentinoed - Maithili, Munda, Khasi and of course Centamilzh (which you dislike) and all others.. Then let us talk about your desire to promote rotating festivals or whatever.

OUTLOOK >> Not only was access to Sanskrit literacy restricted by dharmic law, for the non-savarnas—that is, the vast majority of Indians—it encoded the most evolved form of social apartheid ever known.  

* In Rest of World esp Americas, the Imported European language was imposed on the rest of population and the native tongues have all died out/gone extinct except one (Quechua which is also slowly vanishing)... whereas Sanskrit never attempted to extinguish other tongues but rather accepted the concept of Multi Lingualism. Care to appreciate ever?

* In Medevial England, we had a similar situation - The elite classes conversed in French and working classes conversed in English and the ethnic minorities aka celts were speaking other languages . what happened is over period of time english took over and the celtic tongues were wiped out . Do people in England hate French like you or accuse the language for the prevalent feudalism of English era? Care to explain ?

"Do the conditions which gave rise to this demand exist today?"

1. At the same time that Allama Iqbal was talking of the European mistake in separating religion from the political space, in Turkey, a gentleman called Kemal Attaturk was doing just the opposite, creating a modern, secular state.

2. If the ideas articulated by Iqbal got outdated in less than a century, what about the relevance of ideas that emerged from the deserts of Arabia some 1500 years ago in the 21st century?

The next best option is to convert the Anti Modi-Anti BJP Media propaganda that OUTLOOK successfully has been doing all these years into a Anti israel, anti zionist propaganda.

MALES are maimed and killed in their thousands in any riot, war or massacre.

Only the rape of women, however few in numbers, gets hysterical press coverage and symapthy, due to some primal instinct. Males are routinely dehumanised by the media and society. The 2002 riots gained notoriety only because of the sisterhoods media campaign, completely ignoring the dead men, because they have no symapthy ( media ) 'value'

This is hypocrisy, is disgusting and shameful.

The then Defence Minister confirmed rapes in 2002 and went about asking whats the big deal.In the Parliment.Did it stir the Nation.No.

These women who have been sexually assaulted are the lost Betis of India.

Modi who calls for Ladki abhiyan can atleast get them justice.

The chatter class who debate Sania and UPA,have ignored this outrage completely.

Isnt it a shame ,that TV Channels debate attack on Indians in the West and they ignore such atrocities on Women.

Now for long will Namo continue to enjoy the goodwill is to be seen,the Blogger class will justify hike in Fuel Prices as a must,but the same class went to town blaming failed policy when UPA hiked them.

If UPA hiked fuel prices it was to cover for loss in loot,May be NDA is hiking prices to loot.

MYTH : Men can't be sexually assaulted.

REALITY: Men are sexually assaulted. Any man can be sexually assaulted regardless of size, strength, appearance or sexual orientation.

Particularly males are more vulnerable, in places with no recourse to the law, and situations where he finds himself lower down in hierarchy, such as ragging.

Males, unlike the hysteria displayed by women, however, tend to 'put up' with sexual assaults, as they fear they may never be believed or understood, or worse, blamed ( normal in any misandrous society ), for the attack.

He also wrote-

Mazhab nahi sikhata apas mein bair rakhnaa,

hindi hain hum, vatan hai  hindostaan humara

""Did he want an Islamic polity? Yes. Is it possible he was wrong? He himself admits to this fact, even though we are not made aware of this. Do the conditions which gave rise to this demand exist today? No, neither did they exist once independence was achieved – Bangalsdesh’s creation further gave credence to this notion.

And the final question; is Iqbal relevant in today’s politics? Surely not."" blogs.tribune.com.pk/story/10939/is-allama-iqbal-relevant-in-today%E2%80%99s-politics/

The hyperreporting of rape by the media is done deliberately - to project feminits as 'victims', and males as 'perpertrators'.

It deliberately confuses violent incidences of rape with 'allgations', thus blurring it, and projecting the image of even any allegation, as 'violent' rape. False allegations should be punished with a severity that possibly includes genital mutilation nd cutting of the tongue, to make it explicitily clear, that males have a right to equality.

Non-violent 'rapes', such as 'rape within marriage' are laws misused to target ex husbands in case of divorce. This is another abomination of laws and media misused against males.

In a society with increasing lawlessness, the imbecile media should understand that ALL forms of violence against MALES are on the rise.

Deliberately under reporting these crimes is done to create the impression that women are victims The irresponsible media ends up furthening antimale hate in society.

The fact that 90% of rape allegation in India end up as false allegations, lends credence to the theory that 90% of those in jail serving sentences are also innocent, in Indias antimale judicial system.
