Temple priest smashes 8-year-old Dalit boy's head for prasadam

Bengaluru: If you’re hungry and a Dalit, don’t go to a temple to eat free prasadam, or you might get beaten to within an inch of your life! At least that’s what eight year old Santosh discovered when he went to Rudreshwara Swami Temple on Bazaar road in the city, where prasadam was being distributed.

At the sight of the boy, the angry priest bashed the little boy’s head repeatedly against a pillar in the temple, causing him to bleed. The priest suspected that the boy was a thief.

Bhaskar Prasad, a Dalit Sangharsh Samiti (DSS) leader however says that the boy was targeted because his parents were cobblers by profession and belonged to the scheduled caste. “Why would an 8-year-old boy go to a temple on a Sunday morning if it was not for prasadam.

He was a poor boy and hungry,” Bhaskar told Deccan Chronicle. Not surprisingly, police at Nelamangala town police station on Monday morning refused to register a complaint. Santosh’s father Sakabettaiah’s thumb impression was taken on a blank piece of paper! Police denied they had even entertained such a complaint.
Justice? Not by a long chalk.

Anwaar,

" I remembered that demonizing Muslims is a  bigger point for you and the main reason for you to come to this board!"

You youself have said that Islamists are not Muslims. So, how can expression of concern at the escalation of fundamentalist terror be described as "demonisation of Muslims?" As per your own admission, 99 % of Muslims oppose the Islamists. How can criticism of 1 % be applicable to the remaining 99 %.

Your "larger point" is hard to miss - that terrorism is not unique to Islamists and those with other religious/ideological affiliations have also employed such tactics.

The larger point which you refuse to see even though you are aware of it is that Islamists draw inspiration and sustenance from their scriptures. That is their main strength. Nothing can be more convincing than the words of the Almighty.

The causes, be it Palestine or Kashmir, are political but the support is purely based on religion and the methods utilised are legitimised by using the scriptures.

You, as a man of learning, may be able to ijtihad to gain insight into what jihad is all about but not everybody is an Anwaar. There are hundreds of thousands of semi-literate mujahideen like Ajmal Kasab out there who can be cynically used by the likes of Hafeez Saeed and their ilk. You do not seem to be concerned about it and prefer to characterise those who express concern as demonisers. 

Who is missing the larger point?

THE holy book is clear about what to do when you capture a city: “Put to the sword all the men in it”. As for the women and children, “You may take these as plunder for yourselves.” This is pretty much the advice that the fighters of Islamic State (IS) seem to have followed in the Sinjar area of northern Iraq, peopled largely by members of the Yazidi faith, that the jihadists seized last month. Reports by the UN and independent human-rights groups suggest that the invaders executed hundreds of Yazidi men and kidnapped as many as 2,000 women and children.

I am really stunned as how people ignore mountain of evidence and make a claim , when the contrary has been true for ever, just because they want the facts to be different, so they invent them  !!!

The writer says

"The appeasement of Islamic fundamentalism for capturing the Muslim votebank is the surest way of alienating the Muslim votebank. "

Do you know how Jinnah's muslim league , which had won only 15-20% of muslim votes in previous provincial elections, went on to win 85% of muslim votes in 1945-46 provincial elections ?   Do you know who make the vote bank of Mamata, Mulayam and Laloo ? Do you know why Sonia Gandhi went before elections to meet the communal imam of Jama Masjid , asking for muslim votes ?

Why make such false claims , just because you want muslims to vote contrary to what they normally do ? Its human nature. Its never going to happen.

Oh really ?  Then Why is Mamata in Bengal, Mulayam in UP and Laloo in Bihar appeasing Islamic fundamentalists ?  So they got it all wrong ?  Are they not the favorites of the cummunity that they are appeasing as in Bengal were numerous illegally constructed madrassas on government land have come up with zero prosecution ???

According to CNN’s sources, The gunman Zehaf-Bibeau was born in 1982 and had a history of drug use before his conversion to Islam.  Two days ago another canadian soldier was killed by a recent convert to Islam in canada.

Which country has the largest number of 'converts' to Islam ? India during the 1200 alien, cruel occupation. Just stating the facts. Bitter but true.

I'm always amused by what sickos mean by this. What exactly do they mean by zero evidence? Isn't huge groups on street shouting Allah-o-Akbar not evidence? Isn't terrorists openly setting office, requesting money from ordinary folks (remember, Rs10 for the cost of a bullet to kill an Indian soldier), and receiving lot of money not evidence? Isn't virtually eliminating the entire minority population, and have laws giving death sentence to folks for dishonoring Quran, or Mohammed not evidence? What evidence will suffice?

Isn't it exactly the same trick Pak uses? There is no evidence of terrorism from our country. Nothing India provides is adequate.

No wonder the Paki on this forum uses the exact same tactics.

Well, no wonder TOI is refered to as TOILET Paper and they proved it in this contravesy, if you have been on their newspaper site, the entertainment section journalists seem to be highly pervert. Also, they are well known for misleading headlines, if you have been there you will agree that that headline says one thing and the story is altogether different. Anyways, media in India (including outlook) employ people with garbage mentality!

>> "have the succus demanded that Modi condemn the killing of Ramesh Jadhav by a bunch of muslims?"

He was not killed because he was a Hindu. He was trying to stop a fight in front of his house. I do not know the religion of the hooligans who killed him.

There is no evidence for that. Parties supporting terrorists have never won more than a handful of seats in Parliament. On the other hand the BJP in Gujarat won a rich harvest of votes after the massacre of 2002!

The reporting on these incidents, particulary in the North American and British media is lazy and/or dishonest.  In the haste to blame "both sides", and to suggest that both India and Pakistan 'blame the other' for starting the firing, real questions have been lost sight of. 

Who is always trying to raise the Kashmir issue? -Pakistan

Who is trying to infiltrate terrorists into Kashmir-Pakistan

Who wants to cleanse the border areas of non-Moslems or even Moslems who are not sympathetic to Kashmir separatism-Pakistan

Does the Pakistani military want to assert itself and show that it is the real power in the country?-  Yes

Does Pakistan want to send a message that whatever India achieves in Washington, or on the planet Mars, it must deal with the Kashmir issue if it wants lasting peace in the subcontinent?-  Absolutely yes.

Now ask these same questions of India and the Indian army, including vis-a-vis the Pakistani Kashmir or POK, and also of the Indian army's position in the power structure in India,  and the motive becomes totally lost.  India is not raising the issue of POK, or providing cover-fire for infiltrators into that area.

The motivation is almost all on the Pakistani side. The international, and even sections of the Indian, doesn't seem to get it. Or it is wary of stating it, for whatever perverse reason.

Why are these words "appropriate", "heist" etc. being used? Is Modi not an Indian? Does he not have the same right over our so-called icons as other Indians have? If he has used them to convey a point effectively, isn't it something we all should admire and learn from on how to make use of something efficiently? Are Gandhi, Patel, Nehru etc. RK Misra's father's property?
