Ajmer Dargah chief, Zakir Naik and Digvijay Singh on Narendra Modi

The Ajmer Sharif Dargah chief Syed Sarwar Chishti recently made a statement saying that if Narendra Modi becomes the Prime Minister it would not be “surprising if all Muslims become terrorists.” We have had the Islamist televangelist Zakir Naik proudly proclaim that “Every Muslim should be a terrorist”. The professional secularist and Congress party henchman  Digvijay Singh has already endorsed Zakir Naik for the greater good of secularism in India [sic].

All that remains is for Syed Sarwar Chishti, Zakir Naik and Digvijay Singh to get together and publicly proclaim their unequivocal support for Narendra Modi as the future Prime Minister of India.


Churmuri suffering from Romnesia?

It is pathetic to see Churmuri’s contrived analogies between American and Indian politics, in what can only be described as a sorry attempt to cover for the most corrupt, farce of a government, in post-1947 India, “led” by a spineless man who continues to lie about his home address to get into parliament. For at least one good reason, Obama’s successful re-election should be welcomed by the nationalist spectrum. GOP coming to power would have meant a blatant US government supported thrust to convert heathens in India, as we saw during the Bush years. Of course that still goes on even when the democrats are in power, under the cover of “secularism”, but it is not as brash.

Well wishers of Hinduism would do well to realize that be it democrats or republicans, both are unquestionably on the side of the American religious majority and their geo-political interests. Unlike in India, being “liberal” in the US doesn’t imply the need to spew bile on and work against the interests of the religious majority. To those unaware it may be revealing to know that a well known American politician who calls herself liberal has publicly spoken in favor of her Christian faith. This same liberal politician also sent letter of support to a farcical conference in the US by fanatical neo-converts where ludicrous theories such as “Hinduism is derived from Christianity” were spouted. Liberalism in the US is more to do with race and economic policies. That both so-called Indian right wingers and “liberal” establishment stooges draw comical false analogies between American and Indian politics, out of touch with ground realities, only goes to show their shallow understanding and how Western paradigms as one-size-fits-all are inaccurate.

It is pertinent to mention that the editor/contributor of Churmuri, Krishna Prasad, is also the editor of a (Delhi-Sultanate leaning?) magazine that not too long ago (in a tit-for-tat most likely on being nudged by the powers that be of the Sultanate?), brought out a feature calling Obama the “underachiever” who uses “lofty rhetoric” and whose “sheen is gone”. But now that Obama has been re-elected, Mr. Editor can’t stop singing paeans to him. Looks like Churmuri is suffering from an advanced case of Romnesia.

pretamata in India as Western geo-political handle

The informed and the discerning will surely be aware of the overwhelmingly foreign funded, organized interventions by the pretamata in India’s economic (and social) policies. We recently saw massive hindrances through religious mobilization at the Kudankulam Atomic Power Project. The Posco project in Orissa was (and still is) stalled through machinations that unquestionably reek of organized efforts of the pretamata. It should be obvious that certain countries in the Occident view India as competitor. And it should also be obvious that these countries would seek to replace India’s natural Hindu identity with one subservient to their interests. We can already see this happening in the aforementioned cases where a demographic subscribing to a subservient identity was leveraged to create problems to India’s disadvantage. Of course, due to the inherently anti-dharma parasitic toxicity called secularism, the political class has and will continue to ignore these attempts to subvert India. However, we can and will continue to educate the generally clueless Hindu populace about these ongoing machinations and the impending dangers that they bode for our country and civilization.

In this context, the relevant email below from a perceptive individual presents another case of the mlechCha-s leveraging  the poisonous fangs of the pretamata to oppose industrial development in interestingly one of India’s most mineral rich regions. The sender’s name has been removed to respect her/his privacy.

Readers are advised to be circumspect about Anglospheric industrialists who are known to play both ways. If the pretamata ensures them clearance, they have been known to facilitate harvests. Nonetheless, surely the discerning will be able to separate the wheat from the chaff in the quoted email below, and understand the message it carries for dharmAbhimukha-s.

Churches (‘Jharkhand tribal body’) oppose ArcelorMittal project. Why?

Why do churches oppose industrial development in India, specially in backward tribal areas?They don’t oppose industry in USA and Europe, from where they get much of their funding. Why? Three reports. Read together. Catholic Asian News clearly identifies Dayamani Barla as a Christian.

The women’s movement will oppose these exploiters, explains Dayamani Barla of the Gossner Evangelical Lutheran Church, one of the woman leaders.

Jharkhand tribal body to oppose ArcelorMittal project
PTI Jul 5, 2012, 02.52PM IST

RANCHI: Days after steel tycoon L N Mittal expressed disappointment over delay in his proposed steel projects in the country, the Adivasi Moolvasi Astitva Raksha Manch today said it would continue to oppose his Jharkhand project.

“We will not allow any new steel company in Jharkhand. They (industrialists) are out to destroy forest and fertility of agricultural land. Forty villages in Gumla and Khunti districts will be affected by the ArcelorMittalproject,” chief convener of the Manch Dayamani Barla Barla said here.

The CEO of world’s largest steel-maker ArcelorMittal said in New York on June 19: “There are “understandable challenges in India relating to land acquisition and raw materials, but nevertheless the government must find a way to overcome these road-blocks more swiftly.”

Stating that ut of the 104 MoUs the Jharkhand government had signed, 98 were with steel companies, Barla said, “The state government talks of sustainable development. What type of sustainable development does it want? Setting up steel mills in every village?”

Reacting to reports quoting L N Mittal that it would take five to 10 more years for progress in his company’s India plans, Barla asked, “Does it mean they will set up factories after ten years without destroying the environment?”

Asked how can industrilisation and development take place without, she questioned, “How development took place before signing MoUs?”

ArcelorMittal signed the MoU with Jharkhand in 2005 while a 2009 study by the ASSOCHAM said that Mittal got mines in Jharkhand but not land. It said the project could generate employment for 5,500 people directly and 20,000 indirectly.


UCAN: Indian tribal women launch movement against resource ‘exploiters’

UCANews (www.ucanews.com)
RANCHI, India (UCAN) – Tribal women in Jharkhand have decided to oppose people usurping their water, forest and land.

Approximately 1,000 tribal women, including Christians, from all over the eastern Indian state launched a movement against their “exploiters” at a special training seminar.

Adivasi Mahila Adhikar Sangarsh Morcha (tribal women’s forum for empowerment and struggle) organized the June 14-15 seminar in the state capital of Ranchi, some 1,160 kilometers (about 720 miles) southeast of New Delhi. It was held at Gossner Evangelical Lutheran Theological College.

The seminar stressed women’s role in fighting for “jal, jungle and jameen” (water, forest and land). Participants called for a jani shikar (hunt by women) to drive out those who have occupied tribal land and abused the state’s forests and natural resources.

Jharkhand, India’s most mineral-rich region, lies at the heart of the tribal belt in eastern India. It was carved out of Bihar state in 2000 purportedly to help tribal advancement, but tribal leaders complain that more than five years later, industrialists and politicians from outside still control the state.

Non-tribal outsiders, whom the tribal people call dikhu, control the state’s mines and industries set up after clearing vast forest cover. This has led to hundreds of thousands of tribal people losing ancestral lands and becoming homeless and hungry. Thousands have migrated to cities in search of work.

The women’s movement will oppose these exploiters, “especially corrupt government officials, mediators and contractors,” who operate at various levels of administration, explains Dayamani Barla of the Gossner Evangelical Lutheran Church, one of the woman leaders.

Speaking with UCA News June 15, the Protestant woman narrated a four-century-old tribal folktale about women donning men’s attire to fight an invading army one night when they found their menfolk too drunk to defend the community. The tribal people commemorate that event every 12 years as jani shikar, for which tribal women traditionally hunt animals.

The festival came this year and the women decided to launch a new jani shikar against the exploiters, said Barla, the movement’s convener. She said the “new hunt” would not involve weapons. Instead, the women “will besiege corrupt officials and their offices and question them.”

According to her, the state has “many officials” who have physically abused tribal women and grabbed tribal land. “Our activists will identify them and try to get them punished,” Barla said, adding that her people have lost “trust” in the present government. The pro-Hindu Bharatiya Janata Party (Indian people’s party) heads the state’s coalition government.

Martina Samad, a Catholic tribal woman, confirmed that their movement will eschew violence in favor of identifying corrupt officials and pursuing legal action against them. “Women will work without weapons. No one will be allowed to carry a weapon, not even a stick,” she told UCA News June 15.

The organizers plan to train about 1,000 women to lead the movement in villages. These women will keep in touch with the movement’s Ranchi-based coordinating center, which will handle legal matters, Samad explained.

What has upset Viviane Lakra, a Catholic woman leader, is that the state has signed more than 40 memorandums of understanding with industrial groups. These agreements allow the groups to set up various industrial units in the state that Lakra says would “essentially mean uprooting” tribal families.

“Women cannot remain silent spectators to the usurpation of their land in the name of development. We plan to prepare women to contest the next elections. We want a complete change in policies. We know we can achieve this if we have members in the legislative assembly,” Lakra asserted.

Local journalist Vasvi, a Hindu woman who supports the movement, told UCA News that “only women can save their lands,” because the tribal men have become “drunkards who sell their land just for their drinking needs.”

Vasvi, who attended the seminar, suggested that the women should extend their movement “to eradicate alcoholism in tribal society, which is eating up tribal men and youth.”

State legislative assembly member Bandhu Tirkey, a Catholic who was present at the seminar, told UCA News the meeting was a milestone in the tribal struggle for justice. The hunting festival has “rightly inspired the women,” he said. “The stories of our mothers’ bravery will encourage them and help tribal society.”

Bishop Hemant Hansda, moderator or top official of the Gossner Evangelical Lutheran Church, lauded the women’s initiative. “Our women are more alert than the men. The Church supports their nonviolent movement,” he told UCA News,

Don’t see things progressing in India, no plan to invest there: Lakshmi Mittali

NRI billionaire and ArcelorMittal chief Lakshmi Mittal once again criticized the decision making in India.
PTI | Jul 29, 2012, 10.10PM IST
LONDON: Indian steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal has no immediate plans to invest in India, where his recent attempts to build steel plants in Jharkhand and Odisha reportedly face local opposition and wrangles over land acquisition, says a media report.

Mittal, who is Britain’s richest individual, told Britain’s Sunday Times that India remained a priority for him but not for investment.

He said: “India remains a priority but not for investment. I’m not locating capital to India or China as I don’t see things progressing there. We can’t remain stuck, so we move on. Now our priority is to reduce debt, we sell non-core assets. But we continue to invest in mining and become self-dependent.”

Asked about his strategy to target India and China for growth, he said: “We’ve not succeeded in both countries”.

Mittal’s wealth has reportedly halved since 2008 to 12.7 billion pounds.

Recession and lower demand for steel may force his company ArcelorMittal to close some of its Europe operations, leading to more job losses.

Admitting the likelihood of job losses, he said in the interview: “I have all the sympathies with the people who will be affected by this action. But the positive side is that we will be saving jobs for many times more people.”

Politicians in Europe, he said, need to sort out the economy, and added that the second half of the year would be very challenging.

On the lower demand for steel, he said: “If we don’t have the orders, what can we do? We produce what we can sell, and we have to build a sustainable business model.”

Mittal, who was one of the torch bearers for the Olympics Torch Relay, has contributed 20 million pounds towards the ArcelorMittal Orbit near the Olympics Stadium.


From Marxist to liberal. Gunga Din all the way.

Here is the “evolution” of the communist propagandists from the Delhi “Historians” Group: Post cold war, from socialist, Marxist, these worthies now flatter themselves with epithets like progressive, liberal. Any other talk of “ability to learn and evolve” is pure hogwash. How many of these worthies and their indoctrinated students expressed any dismay, leave alone protested, when communist terrorists in Nepal burnt down an entire university? But of course, surely, that was for the greater good of the coming revolution. Hang on, I should correct myself. Surely, that progressive act was for the greater good of secularism and liberalism in “South Asia”. It is hardly surprising that these ideologically and politically motivated academics serve as good Gunga Dins of Western Euro-American centric academics.

What the plight of Hindu girls in Pakistan tell us about South Asian (brown) identity

How many proponents of “South Asian (brown) identity” have raised their voice against the rampant kidnappings, rapes and forced conversions of Hindu girls in Pakistan? How many petitions or rallies have these eminences taken out to protest the atrocities against Hindus and Sikhs in Pakistan? No doubt, the convenient connivance of these eminences goes well with their screaming-from-the-rooftop propounding of a contrived bonhomie among “South Asians”. Now if we were to subscribe to this purported bonhomie, we might feel that surely, Hindu girls being kidnapped, raped and forcibly converted can only be for the greater good of secularism, liberalism, and of course, a South Asian brown identity. We might further feel that surely, these girls are only being liberated from the fascistic clutches of Brahminical, chauvinist, obscurantist, bourgeois, communal, Aryan Hindus (we of course mean only Hindutvavaadis [sic]), and have been given an equal opportunity by the secular-liberal South Asians (rAkShasa-s) for cultivating South Asian brown identity. But we do not subscribe to the politically and ideologically loaded South Asian “screw-Hindus” identity. The inane and forced South Asian identity is a means for sundry ideologues to advance mindless appeasement of the rAkShasamata. It is a means for sepoys-in-training to impress the senior sepoys in sundry South Asian organizations, earn secular-liberal credentials and advance their career. It is a means for the Gunga Dins to earn their keep by serving the geo-political and soul-harvesting aspirations of the pretamata through undermining the natural Hindu identity. It is a means to tie down and make dhArmika-s lower their defenses by diluting the natural Hindu/dhArmika identity. Each and every dharmAbhimukha should seek to discard and destroy even the very idea of this dangerous, despicable South Asian identity. Otherwise, what is now happening to Hindu and Sikh girls in the land-of-the-pure might some day very well happen in your own neighborhood, to someone from your own family. Make no mistake, then, as now, the dasyu-s expounding South Asian “screw-Hindus” identity will maintain a convenient connivance with the marUnmatta and pretachArin asura-s for the greater good of their perfidious agendas.
