All these PR excercises are a wastewhen you dont take positions on Rogue MP"s and your Giriraj for Loot of Public Money.

Ths far the Govt wasnt proactive in announcing Aid for Farmers who suffered loses due to delayed Moonsoon.

Belated payment of Farm loans or subsidy on seeds.

Various reasons are being given for spiralling prices,but no action or answers.Why?.

So far after the hype Namo has been disappointing.

Nothing in the Budget to increase in allocation for Warehouses to prevent loss of food grains.

Wonder why we dont hear about rotting grains on Tv.

Whole lot was promised and sold,so far a lot to be desired is to be done.

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.

>>Sir Muhammad Iqbal was neither a ruler nor a mullah. He was an Islamic scholar and philosopher who was absolutely clear in his mind that there can be no separation of state and religion as far as Islam is concerned.

He also wrote-

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.

The Indian judiciary is the rotten core of Indian democracy. This is a system that has ultimately lead to a reformed criminal becoming Prime Minister! Lawyers are scoundrels, and if their corruption in politics is well known, their corruption in their own profession was a well hidden secret!

Corruption, however, is not unique to ONE judge that Katju has named. So the eccentric Katju could explain why he chose to investigate only this one judge.

Besides, corruption is not the ONLY issue that afflicts the judicary. Cateism, Regionalism ( possibly Katjus case ), Religionism, Misandry, Delay, Ineffiiency, Media appeasment, and Unaccountablity have ALL lead to the fall of the Indian judiciary.

Don Quixote,

All you are arguing is what the mullahs have been arguing for over a thousand years, namely that Islam cannot be reformed. Modern Muslims who identify themselves as either moderates, seculars, liberals, progressives or reformists believe that all religions need to evolve and keep pace with the times. Their watchwords are democracy, secularism, freedom of speech, gender equality, respect for the religions of others and full citizenship rights for and non-discrimination of all minorities. They tend to reject the Hadiths and re-interpret many of the passages in the Quran. They talk not of what Islam was but what Islam can be.

It is very easy to say why others are wrong, particularly when you are dealing with  a well entrenched system. The corruption in our society is wide spread not restricted to politician or government servants  alone. Dishonesty is spread in every section of the society. Dishonesty is common thread we can see in  Aam Adhmi. Taxi, Auto drivers who over charge,  Judges,all type of traders and businessmen whether petty or big whose goal is to earn more and more without  ethics, workers who want lsalaries even if they are on strike, students who destroy public properties during their agitations while they want their house to be safe, are all part of the same system.These AAP members are beneficieries of the same system. Mahatma Ghandi inheritted worst society and worked tirelessly by presenting himself as example and uplifted the society. But he worked patiently for years with out any hunger for power .That was why the freedom struggle was successful. He did not blame every wrong on Britishers. But Arvind tells a lot of lies, do a lot of manipulation and himself is dishonest in means of handling politics, except for his financial integrity which will be tested only with longer duration in power. But financial integrity  alone is not enough to change society. I am feeling sad for these well intentioned youngsters who ride on clay horse in a flood.

 It Turns Out Hamas Didn’t Kidnap and Kill the 3 Israeli Teens After All

Despite continued negotiations, the violence shows no signs of letting up, and after Thursday night's massive protests in the West Bank, there is still no ceasefire agreement. On Friday, it became clear that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's attempts to broker a seven-day truce were rejected by Israeli officials. Instead, Israel will apparently widen its ground operation in the Gaza Strip, despite international outcry about the civilian death toll. According to unnamed officials, the proposed truce was too generous to Hamas's demands.

Hamas, meanwhile, still hasn't weighed in on the agreement, whose details are being kept secret, but continued to launch rockets into Israel. International peace talks are set to resume in France this weekend, and we're keeping our fingers crossed.

"That was the way Islam was interpreted, with both the ruler and the mullah being complicit for their selfish reasons. Separation of state and religion is as possible in Islam as it was in Christianity, but it won't be easy at this stage."....Anwaar

The great philosopher, Allama Iqbal, who probably knew more about Islam tham most, including Anwaar, is quoted as saying:

"If you begin with the conception of religion as complete other worldliness, then what has happened to Christianity in Europe is perfectly natural. The universal ethics of Jesus is displaced by national systems and ethics and polity. The conclusion to which Europe is consequently driven is that religion is a private affair of the individual, and has nothing to do with what is called man's temporal life.

Islam does not bifurcate the unity of man into an irreconcilable duality of spirit and matter. In Islam God and the universe, spirit and matter, church and state, are organic to each other. Man is not the citizen of a profane world to be renounced in the interest of a world of spirit situated elsewhere. To Islam matter is spirit realizing itself in space and time. Europe uncritically accepted the duality of spirit and matter probably from Mannichaean thought. Her best thinkers are realising this initial mistake today"

Sir Muhammad Iqbal was neither a ruler nor a mullah. He was an Islamic scholar and philosopher who was absolutely clear in his mind that there can be no separation of state and religion as far as Islam is concerned. He felt that Europe commited a huge mistake by separating politics from religion.

That is the precise reason why he demanded the creation of Pakistan, where Muslims of India could live in accordance with their faith and value systems.

"In Arabia, there was no concept of state in the seventh century. "

The Marxist view of the state was that it is an instrument of oppression of the working classes and in an egalitarian society the state would wither away. Seventh century Arabia, being the Islamic Utopia, obviously would not have had a state.

So, in the Marxist sense, Anwaar is right.

A more realistic and accurate description of the state was given by Max Weber, who defines the state as "a compulsory political organization with a centralized government that maintains a monopoly of the legitimate use of force within a certain territory."

1. Did 7th century Arabia have tribes which had territorial jurisdiction? YES.

2. Was it compulsory to adhere to its laws and values? YES.

3. Did that leadership structure have a monopoly on legitimate use of force (for punishing law breakers or defending the territory)? YES.

I had earlier pointed out that Medina had a constitution, which was drafted by the prophet himself, which served as a template for the Islamic Caliphate, which had all the attributes of a state like taxation, jurisprudence, army, legislative council (majlis-e-shoora) and bureaucracy.

The concept and the existence of a state was very much present in 7th century Arabia, even though its form was different from what it is today.

If these shemes were effective congress would not have lost so misserably. While working for Bullet train and good roads and ifrastructue and better industrialization and employment creation, this government also focus on uplifting masses out of poverty, Their proposal to use Mahnrega for building toilets and other rural assets is one such case.

Can you name one Islamic Public personality who is demanding that KingDom of Saudi Arabia be made a secular state and places of worship of Christians, Jews, Sikhs,  Hindus, Buddhists all be allowed to be built in Riyadh and Mecca ? Ans is NONE

Mr Arshad Alam, Secularism and Tolerance is a Two way street. If you are genuinely observant of the preachings of Islam as propagated by prophet, start this Eid, turn into a new leaf, participate in festivites of other faiths and start a movement to demand the complete secularisation of Saudi Arabia. We should have a multi faith worship place right in Mecca beside the mosques there and that will send the message that Islam is a tolerant faith.

Krubakar >> The human body is just a biological machine, whether you are a swede or a nair, so as a human consumes more food without adequate exercise, the risk of these diseases increase. They do not have any implications on common ancestry

In United States of America, we have a well established ethnic groups by way of White (Europeans) and Black (Afro Americans) and a very tiny American Natives (previously named red indians) . The groups have 1) Clear difference in appearance, thus Bush and Obama are not looking alike 2) Difference in cultural habits and social markers thus Blacks show greater excellence in competitive sports vis a vis whites 3) Clear health indicator differences in that the biggest mortality indicators for black americans are different from white americans.

Come to India , if in India - Upper castes == aryans == Invading White race and Lower castes = dravidans = subjugated darkskinned black race, why dont we see the difference in all these aspects?

Upper castes in Bihar have poorer health indicators than a lower caste in Karnataka, how come?

We have lot of differences based on region and not caste (on health indicators).

AIT is a dangerous superstition like child sacrifice. If AIT is taught in schools then it is no different from teaching our children that sacrificing a child to bring rains is also right.

Stop AIT fiction now and save India.

The lack of toilets is a matter of disgust to BOTH feminists and males. Just as it is to BOTH secus and pseudo secus like VM.

However, VM, the typical male hating journalist that he is, looks with sympathy ONLY towards women.

VM should wake up to reality: At least TEN TIMES as many males are subject to violence, as women are. And hyper reporting crimes only against women ( in this case while using a loo ), is biased and dehumanising males, and provoking further misandry, through false propaganda.

In a society with no justice like India, crimes can, and will, only go up - ESPECIALLY against the much hated male gender. Hyper reporting any crimes against feminists is biased, hateful reporting of the lowest order and unworthy of any illiterate journalist, or even one of VMs eminence

No question that We need a massive sanitation revolution - But trust me this will never be possible if we are obsessed with Western Style centralised sewerage disposal systems with water intensive Western Toilets (that is the European Flush Closets) as the model. We need simpleer, cheaper and less costly to roll out options . And it will be a good idea to divert the money wasted in NREGA into aiding rural folks (in BIMARU States) to build toilets in thier homes.

Mosque built where Durga Nagpal had razed wall - KADALPUR (GREATER NOIDA): A mosque has come exactly at the spot where young IAS officer Durga Sakthi Nagpal had gone with her men a year ago - on July 27, 2013 - to demolish a wall that had come up illegally on government land. That act had led to her suspension, ostensibly because she was inflaming communal passions in the month of Ramzan. 

A year on, work is almost complete on the new mosque that sits illegally on that land. All it needs are the finishing touches of plaster and paint. 

The district administration here claims it has no knowledge of this structure. Said Gautam Budh Nagar district magistrate AV Rajamauli, "I have no idea whether the mosque in Kadalpur village was developed with permission or not." 

Kadalpur falls under the Sadar division of Gautam Budh Nagar district. Bacchu Singh, sub-divisional magistrate (Sadar), said, "I believe the mosque was already developed in Kadalpur before my posting around 10 months back. But I will visit Kadalpur soon and check the facts." 

Durga, too, was the SDM of Sadar before she was suspended. Between February and July, she had launched a virtual war against the sand mafia. She along with the Noida police registered 66 FIRs, arrested 104 people and seized 81 vehicles in that period. 

This zeal, obviously, did not go down well with some. 

A tape surfaced where senior SP leader Narendra Bhati was heard bragging that he had managed to get Durga suspended in just 41 minutes. 

Though there was intense media glare on the issue, the Akhilesh Yadav government chargesheeted Durga on August 4. Her suspension was finally revoked on September 22, a day after she and her husband met Akhilesh Yadav. A few days later, she was posted as joint magistrate, Kanpur Rural, and then in March this year, was made chief development officer of Mathura. On July 12, she was cleared for central deputation, and is now awaiting her posting. 

And Greater Noida is back to where it was before Durga stepped on the accelerator. The mining mafia is active again. And the mosque has come up with no one in the administration having any idea whether it is legal or not. 

Hafiz Aas Mohammad, the cleric of the mosque, said, "We are all responsible citizens and live in harmony. There could have been communal tension after the demolition of the wall but all residents behaved responsibly. The residents only want development." 

Ironically, the mosque may not have come up had Durga not demolished the wall. Locals said they had been trying to build the mosque since 2008, but didn't have sufficient funds. But after the demolition, money poured in from various quarters, and the structure came up rapidly.

"The very fact that Indians across caste and regional groups (be it a Punjabi Dalit or a Kerala Nair) are susceptible to diabetic and cardiac diseases in greater measure suggest a common ancestory."

I would not go so far. The human body is just a biological machine, whether you are a swede or a nair, so as a human consumes more food without adequate exercise, the risk of these diseases increase. They do not have any implications on common ancestry -- it is not like some subset of the human race is diabetes proof as a group.

Genetic studies are hard because the variations in genes and genetic material is mathematically so large as to preclude analysis.

The scientific american article is based on a larger logic that the original group of humans had the richest variation in stomach bacteria (as in african groups) while those that branched of and propagated within themselves, as in in-breeding, had a smaller variety of H.Pylorii. These studies are done to great detail to draw the conclusions that they did -- they are not hand-waving proclamantions like the marxist "linguist" losers like Romila thapar and her ilk, who fit the evidence (by discarding inconvenient parts) to fit their pet theories.

The new ICHR chief is arguing against such practices and wants all available evidence to be looked at, which is a good thing.

The A-G is the Govt's legal adviser. A lawyer who says what his client wants to hear rather tender correct legal advice is a bad lawyer. This is the problem with the Congress. They have got so used to the previous A-G Vahanvati tendering whatever legal advice the UPA wanted to hear that they think that all A-Gs are like that.

Let me add that if Anwaar believes that the Congress should name the Leader of the Opposition on the analogy of coalition govts, the correct position would be that it  should demonstrate support of 106 MPs, ie. half the opposition 212, and not 60. I'm sure if the opposition members were to elect their leader, Didi and Amma would have something to say.

This is rubbish! If Vajpayee's NDA coalition and Manmohan Singh's UPA coalition could nominate them as PM's in spite of the fact that the BJP and the Congress did not have absolute majorities in the Lok Sabha, the UPA coalition now with 60 members should be able to appoint LoP. - Anwaar

Usual rubbish from the Sage of Dallas. The PM is the person who commands majority support in Parliament. There is no requirement that such support should be from one party, which is what coalitions are all about. The Leader of the Opposition Post is given to the person chosen by the SINGLE largest party in the opposition, provided it has a minimum of 10% of the seats. Both the rules and precedent support this.

It is not that Anwaar is so ignorant or stupid that he does not know this. He spouts this rubbish in the hope that some less informed individuals may fall for it.

The post means very little in real terms. But Sonia desperately wants this post for the Congress to salvage at least a part of her wounded pride in being very badly mauled and humiliated in the last elctions. That apart, Congress is very unused to a situation where its supremacy and the word of its supremo is NOT meeekly and unquestioningly accepted as Law by all else and whatever it says is considered  as Gospel. Congress is still so arrogant and unashamed  that despite the ADMK, TMC and the BJD refusing even to sit next to it in the House, it is strutting around as if it has 400 seats!   The party can never accept the truth that it has been finally consigned to the dustbin and has lost all credibility.

>> Sania is a much better Indian than K Laxman

It is amusing to see that the scoundrels who want to climb on the shoulders of Sania to spread their hate, are completely impervious to the issues of gross injustice, and identity politics brought out by Laxman and other nationalists.

Laxman has highlighted not only the pernicious attitude of the sicko KCR govt, that has done gross injustice to a player like Saina, who is far more accomplished, and actually lives in Hyderabad, but a far more serious issue of the govt blatantly discriminating against the kids.

I guess none of this matters to the jehadis. As long as a Muslim gets "first claim", they are happy. If they can also spread some hate against BJP in the process, it's double bonus for them.

ROTTEN COMPANY - What the Shiv Sena tells us about the BJP

MUKUL KESAVAN

When the story broke, the Shiv Sena’s reaction was to flatly deny that such an incident had occurred....The Shiv Sena is what it is, a party that makes a political living out of bigotry and brazenness and violence. The parliamentary ‘debate’ on the incident gave us an insight into how the Bharatiya Janata Party, as the principal party of government, is likely to deal with the thuggery of its Hindutvavadi allies.

Shouldn’t the fact that a gang of allied MPs publicly intimidated and humiliated an employee in a government institution like the Maharashtra Sadan for the benefit of television cameras be enough for the BJP, the principal party of government, to condemn their conduct?

Ramesh Bidhuri is a BJP MP who represents South Delhi. During the zero hour debate in the Lok Sabha, he charged into the well of the House, bent on a confrontation with Asaduddin Owaisi, yelling that “this is Hindustan, not Pakistan”, and allegedly saying other things so vile that he embarrassed his own party members into restraining him.

The fact of the matter is that Bidhuri’s libel — that Muslims are fifth columnists, Pakistanis in mufti —is part of the stock-in-trade of Sangh Parivar politics. Muslim ghettoes in Gujarat are routinely called ‘Pakistan’.

The prime minister, naturally, said nothing.

"Having made Muslims largely irrelevant to their electoral future, the BJP still has a choice:.."

In a place like India where there is no coherent, unified majority, no one can make Muslims irrelevant. Rather they have made themselves irrelevant by following imams and mullahs like sheep, taking on fake Arab names and aping Arabs, and voting for political parties that pander to them such as the Congress party and TMC.

Join the 21st century and you will be as relevant as any other community. This means rejecting wahabbi excretions, educating your sons and your daughters in real schools instead of sending your sons to madrassas and your daughters to get married at a young age, rejecting violence as a way of solving problems, and focusing on being good Indians first and Muslims next.

And yes, you need to stop making mountains out of molehills. The Sena fellow should be reprimanded for his behaviour regardless of whether the victim was Hindu or Muslim. But in a world where your coreligionists feel free to enslave and rape non-Muslim women (Nigeria, Pakistan), ethnically cleanse non-Muslims (Syria,Iraq, Pakistan, Kashmir) and in general treat non-Muslims like crap without much protest from Muslims like you, you cannot really expect us to get worked up about some fellow who had a roti thrust in his mouth. There are far worse evils being perpetrated in the world and in India in the name of your religion. Go fix them instead of trying to stoke communal fires over a minor matter.
