Hindutva Terror Unabated in Mangalore

February 8, 2009

The reign of terror unleashed by the Hindutva Brigade continues unabated in Mangalore, with the open support of the state government. On the evening of Feb 6, Shruti, a student of 12th grade at Mangalore was dragged out of the bus along with a boy belonging to Muslim community. Her crime: She knew him well as the brother of her friend and spoke to him in the bus, having seated separately. She had been travelling in the same bus everyday after her college hours. But this journey back home turned out to be different. The driver and conductor of the bus, who have the responsibility towards the safety of the passengers travelling in their bus, turned villains instead and informed the goons of the Hindutva Brigade who entered the bus at Pumpwell, and dragged the two out of the bus at the next stop, put them in an auto and took them to some unknown location. Both were slapped and manhandled. The girl was released after an hour during which some women preached her about good behaviour and warned her not to speak to any boys, not only of Muslim religion. The boy was further tortured and released after many hours.

And the ministers in the BJP led govt., in the state have once again supported the goons and have tried to derail or influence the police investigations. The Chief Minister condemned the attack and in the same breath blamed the Congress for the abduction. His reasoning: The Union minister has condemned the attack! So if any one condemns the attack, he/she automatically becomes the perpetrator of the crime! The district in charge minister belittled the attack when he claimed that there have been several such attacks in the past 3-4 years and blamed the CPM, the party to which the girl’s father, a MLA, belonged. So while the CM blamed the congress, his cabinet minister blamed the CPM! Although the minister blamed the girl, her father and his party for the abduction it was not clear from his remarks as to who were responsible for the other ‘similar’ incidents that he spoke about. May be he needs to be probed further. The home minister, who has the habit of giving himself full marks for all his actions (and inaction), suggested to the MLA that the parents alone should take the responsibility of their children and that the govt. cannot do much about such goons and further told the MLA to be happy and feel relieved that the goons did not do much harm to his daughter other than abducting, keeping in captivity and slapping. So the state of Karnataka can feel safe with a home minster who thanks the goons for not molesting/raping/killing the girl. But we only wonder as to who takes care of his children; may be police have some special responsibility.

Lies, cover ups, blame game – fascism in full force in Karnataka.

And NOW a twist in the tale:

After 3 days, the case seems to have been properly fixed.  It has been claimed by the advocate of the accused that they have links with the left parties because they have been members of the unions affiliated to the CPM, their parents and siblings are members of CPM or CPI  etc. etc.  The various statements issued by the police, CM, Home minister and the advocate revealed several inconsistencies and confusion about CITU, AITUC, DYFI etc. (The Hndutva machinations even attempted at character assassination of the girl who was the victim of the attacks of its goons; further proof of the depths that these forces can stoop to defend their barbarism)

But this photo bares the truth for all: One of the accused, whose face is masked, is seen wearing a saffron lungi! [It is interesting to note that  none of the attackers at the pub were masked, may be because they had owned it up.] Even if the mask is intended to cover the permanent stain of vermilion on the forehead, the lungi says it all! Truth cannot be hidden for long!!

Hindutva Barbarism in Mangalore

January 28, 2009

The Hindutva Brigade is at it again. The goons of Sri Rama Sena, a self-appointed moral police of Hindutva, attacked a pub at the heart of Mangalore city and molested the girls, slapped them, pulled them with their hair, dragged them to the ground – all in the name of protecting Hindu religion, protecting the women from the vices, imposing the Hindu culture, with the goons shouting Bharat Mata ki Jai![See 1, 2, 3

As is now a routine practice, the BJP and its sibling the Bajrang Dal have flip-flopped their response, condemning it, supporting its cause, disowning the cadre but owning up the moral cause, blaming the opposition and the media etc.[1,2] Fascist programme in full force there, for everyone to see. And Pramod Mutalik, the chief of the Sri Ram Sena, openly defended the act on Sunday,[See] apologized to his ‘sisters’ on Tuesday, and disowned the cadres to save himself! And his assurance is simple: Next time, the job will be better done. So, keep waiting for the next attack. (And the BJP Govt. has arrested him, but not for Mangalore attacks!)

And then there is one Govanitashraya Trust headed by the VHP President of Mangalore. Home for destitute cattle and women – in VHP’s scheme of things, Go (cow) is vanita (woman) and vanita may be cow. And that is what the VHP’s cousin SRS has proved by beating the college going girls like cattle. If this is what the women of Mangalore had to suffer and is any indication for the things to come under the rule of the Hindutva Brigade (what they love to call the Rama Rajya), the sympathizers of the Hindutva agenda can take pride in these attacks as, after all, it is done to protect Hindu Religion, now in grave danger!

The sympathisers of Hindutva agenda can now rest assured: their dream of Rama Rajya is being realised just after 6 months of forming the govt. This is the trial by mobs for all our girls, and they can get ready to go to the jungles very soon, no schools or colleges, no education. Incidentally, this attack was carried out in the name of Lord Sri Ram with the mobs shouting Jai Sri Ram and Sri Ramachandra Bhagavan ki Jai, and of course Bharat Mata ki Jai! Hindu Rashtra in the making and all those who feel threatened by minority appeasement, conversions etc. can now heave a sigh of relief. Bharat mata ki jai and Vande mataram – sound really good while the matas are beaten and molested in broad day light at the heart of Mangalore!

Hubli is Karnataka’s Malegaon!

Hubli Bomb Blast

Hubli Bomb Blast

Karnataka police have claimed that they have solved the case of bomb blast inside the Hubli Court in May 2008 with the arrest of 9 people, Nagaraj Jambagi and his aides, from Bagalkot.[See Report]

The blast had occurred during the electioneering for the Karnataka Assembly and was earlier blamed on Islamic terrorists belonging to SIMI, LeT etc. and some Muslim youth were even arrested in this connection. [See Reports 1, 2, 34, 5, 6, 7, 8]

The BJP had blamed the Centre’s soft stand on terror for this attack. [See 1, 2]  However, Narayanaswamy, Union Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs and Planning and senior Congress leader, had claimed that he had information that some political parties were involved in the bomb blast to gain political mileage during the election, [See] and there was a report of even the IB, expressing similar doubts.[See]

Those who have now been arrested by the police have been branded as rowdies or criminals and some reports have claimed that Hubli bomb blast was not a terror attack! [See] (For some, terrorism is the exclusive domain of Islamic terrorists) However, according to the police, the blasts were directed at the SIMI activists, who were to be presented to the court, as well as the cops. [See 1, 2]  It appears that the arrested men were activists of Sri Rama Sene headed by Pramod Mutalik. [See 1, 2, 3]

Now that the arrests have been made by the police of Karnataka, a state being ruled by the BJP, it now remains to be seen as to how the Hindutva Brigade would react to these developments.

But certain things are clear:

When it comes to terror attacks, Hindutva Brigade, ever so eager to point fingers, cannot be trusted and it is the religious fundamentalism that is at the core of most of the terror attacks on innocent civilians. The only answer to the menace is for the people of this great country to stay united and understand the double standards of all those who abuse the names of religions to achieve their sinister designs. And that our people have amply demonstrated post Mumbai 26/11.


And the BJP Double game Continues

November 29, 2008

The BJP is at it again: changing its position every few hours and trying to get political mileage out of the tragedy at Mumbai.

  • LK Advani did not accompany the PM to Mumbai, after having agreed on it
  • The party inserted ads seeking votes in the name of terror attacks
  • Modi turns up in Mumbai to be in front of the cameras; it has been reported that the terrorists supposedly started their journey from Por bunder, Gujarat.
  • Pramod Mutalik, a Hindutva activist from Karnataka has said that Hemant Karkare, Chief of ATS was killed by the terrorists due to the curse of Sadhwi Pragya. Shocking.

BJP changes tack, assails government

India Attacked: Let’s Fight Terror Unitedly

November 27, 2008

India Attacked

Our country has been attacked again. This time by the terrorists who entered Mumbai from a neighbouring country. More than 100 innocent people have been killed and more than 300 injured in the senseless violence. The entire nation is shocked and is united in condemning these heinous acts of terror.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has indicated that the terrorists were from outside India. He also showed his statesmanship by inviting LK Advani, the leader of the opposition, to accompany him to Mumbai. The BJP should at least now rise above its petty partisanship and join the efforts to strengthen the unity and integrity of our country.

It was indeed during the BJP/NDA rule that some of the masterminds of these terror attacks were released from Indian jails in exchange for the hostages held by the hijackers of the Indian Airlines flight. They were even escorted to Kandahar by the then Foreign minister, Jaswant Singh. [See Defeat at Kandahar] Therefore the BJP should introspect its own role in containing terror rather than indulging in mud slinging.

Why Support Terror: Manmohan Asks Advani

terror Suspects Share Platform

Terror Suspects Share Platform

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has taken strong exception to the Bharatiya Janata Party’s stand supporting terror suspect ‘sadhvi’ Pragnya Singh Thakur and on Wednesday he picked up the telephone and spoke to the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate, L.K. Advani, to convey his view. [See]

And Mr. Advani apparently told him that he had merely reacted to the ‘sadhvi’s’ affidavit filed in court alleging that she had been tortured by her police interrogators.  And being a man from BJP, what else he could do but again change his position?

Forever Waiting Advani Unmasks

Forever Waiting Advani Unmasks

BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate-forever-in waiting (it does not matter even if there is no such thing under the Constitution of India) Mr. L.K Advani has finally broken his silence of “no comments” on the arrest of Hindutva activists on the charges of bombing at several places. On Sunday (Nov 16) he indirectly voiced his support for the terror suspects by blaming the congress for raising the “bogey of Hindu terrorism” for vote bank politics. This turnaround is of no surprise to anyone who knows the habits of the Sangh Parivar. [See] And on Tuesday, Nov 18, he did a complete somersault by openly expressing his solidarity with the Sadhwi! [See] The Prime Minister-in-waiting supporting a terror suspect to appease what is considered the majority vote bank is one more reminder of the dubious and dangerous double game that the RSS/BJP have been playing all these years.

And Lalu Yadav, Union Railway Minsiter, has rightly called him and his BJP as terrorists [See] Who can forget Advani’s Rath Yatra in 1990 that blazed a trail of communal violence across the country? [See] Who can forget his leading role in the demolition of the Babri Masjid? (which he regretted while in Pakistan!)
