Right Angle: How the BJP lost the central plot (October 25, 2009)

  • tags: no_tag

    • If a large and important state such as Maharashtra is willing to indulge a party after five years of non-performance, and even ineptitude, it suggests that the Congress creed is fast turning into common sense. The Congress has become something akin to a default preference for peoples and communities who are not driven by either overriding zeal or a fierce sense of distinctiveness.

      Yet, there is a flip side to this characteristically Hindu complacency. The Congress’ partial success in identifying itself as the party of the inoffensive middle ground has been accompanied by the corresponding decline of the BJP as the alternative pole of politics.

Right Angle: No point blaming Raj for Sena-BJP defeat (October 26, 2009)

  • tags: no_tag

    • The Congress may have benefited from the entry of another player that cut into the Shiv Sena-BJP votes but this vote-splitting will remain a part of the game as long as the first-past-the-post system exists. Of course, the Congress-NCP was also happy to indulge Raj because it undermined Uddhav Thackeray and the Shiv Sena. But these tactical manoeuvres cannot take away the fact that Raj did appeal to the beleaguered Marathi manoos of urban Maharashtra far more effectively than the Uddhav-led Shiv Sena could manage. Whereas Uddhav was trying to enlarge the social base of the Shiv Sena and transform it into a conventional regional party, Raj was appealing to the core instincts of the old Shiv Sena. The results showed that Uddhav’s social expansion scheme was undercut by losses in the Shiv Sena’s original strongholds. The Shiv Sena may have been reduced to fourth place, even below the BJP, but in terms of social reach and potential it is still well ahead of the MNS.
    • The results suggest that the Shiv Sena-BJP were a casualty of the larger loss of momentum that seems to be afflicting the NDA and the BJP in particular. The Congress has consistently nourished its own social constituency through a combination of Centrally-funded welfare schemes and symbolism (Rahul Gandhi’s cultivation of Dalits being a prime example).
    • That is because elections aren’t won by booth committees but by the popular mood. That is where the real disconnect lies.

    • According to the Chicago Tribune, “On May 31, 1994, Kifaya Husayn, a 16-year-old Jordanian girl, was lashed to a chair by her 32-year-old brother. He gave her a drink of water and told her to recite an Islamic prayer. Then he slashed her throat. Immediately afterward, he ran out into the street, waving the bloody knife and crying, ‘I have killed my sister to cleanse my honor.’ Kifaya’s crime? She was raped by another brother, a 21-year-old man.
    • In 2001, in Gujar Khan, Pakistan , Zahida Perveen’s husband attacked her, gouged out both her eyes, cut off her nose, and her ears. He wrongly suspected her of adultery.
    • According to Time magazine, in September 2003 in Iraq , Ali Jasib Mushiji, 17, shot his mother and half brother because he suspected them of having an affair and killed his 4-year-old sister because he thought she was their child.
    • One is shocked to know tha a Muslim father in Iran cut off his 7-year-old daughter’s head because he suspected that she had been raped by her uncle. The incident helps one understand on what grounds the Muslim girls are being murdered by her male family members as an act of honor killing and what kind of sexual offences are being committed in Muslim households.
    • Mehnaz Khan and the Maharastrian Hindu boy Vidyanand Jadahv were in love for past several years and eloped to a place called Panve and got married. When Munna Sardar Khan and Sehnaz Khan came to know that their daughter was living with her husband at Panvel, they went there and Sehnaz pleaded with Mehnaz to return home. Both Sehnaz and Munna Khan assured Mehnaz that, once she comes home, they would accept her marriage with Vidyanand.

      However they succeeded to pursue Mehnaz and bring her to their South Mumbai home. But after she returned home nearly at 11 pm at night, Munna Khan strangulated Mehnaz to death with a towel while Sehnaz sat on her chest to prevent her from an escape.  According to the investigating officer Hinduram Patin, Munna Khan then dragged the body to the bathroom and cut it into 11 pieces. He also peeled off the skin from the victim’s face and disfigured it by cutting the nose so that no one could identify it after a possible discovery. He then dumped the pieces in a gunny bag and threw it near the Byculla bridge.

    • The incident help one gauge the degree of Islamic brainwashing which motivates even a mother to kill her own daughter.

महाजाल पर सुरेश चिपलूनकर (Suresh Chiplunkar): ईसाई संगठन का यह न्यूज़लेटर साम्प्रदायिक है या मनगढ़न्त? KCBC Newsletter Kerala Love Jihad

    • सेकुलरों के साथ सबसे बड़ी समस्या यही है कि जब हिन्दुत्ववादी संगठन कुछ भी कहते हैं तो वे इसे दुष्प्रचार, साम्प्रदायिक झूठ आदि की संज्ञा दे देते हैं, समस्या को समस्या मानते ही नहीं, रेत में सिर दबाये शतुरमुर्ग की तरह पिछवाड़ा करके खड़े हो जाते हैं। लव जेहाद के बारे में सबसे पहले हिन्दुत्ववादी संगठनों ने ही आवाज़ उठाई थी, लेकिन हमेशा की तरह उसे या तो हँसी में टाला गया या फ़िर उपेक्षा की गई। अब आज जबकि कर्नाटक और केरल उच्च न्यायालय के न्यायाधीश खुद इसकी जाँच के आदेश दे रहे हैं तब इनकी बोलती बन्द है।
    • हाल ही में "नक्सलवादियों की चैम्पियन बुद्धिजीवी"(?) अरुंधती रॉय ने बयान दिया कि "जब राज्य सत्ता किसी व्यक्ति की सुन ही नही रही हो, और उस पर अन्याय और अत्याचार जारी रहे तो उसका बन्दूक उठाना जायज़ है…", फ़िर तो इस हिसाब से कश्मीर के विस्थापित हिन्दुओं को सबसे पहले हथियार उठा लेना चाहिये था, क्या तब नोबल पुरस्कार विजेता उनका साथ देंगी? जी नहीं, बिलकुल नहीं, क्योंकि यदि हिन्दू "प्रतिकार" करे तो वह घोर साम्प्रदायिकता की श्रेणी में आता है, ऐसी गिरी हुई मानसिकता है इन सेकुलर लुच्चों-टुच्चों की।

* VivekaJyoti *: Congress seems out to unsettle the settled in Kashmir

  • tags: no_tag

    • By Hari Om
    • BJP says day in and day out that it is because of it that Jammu & Kashmir got integrated with the rest of India. It appears to be a false and motivated propaganda. The fact is that it was the Congress which actually integrated the state with the rest of the country by taking several concrete measures. This is a statement of fact.

      BJP was in power at the Centre for six long years between 1998 and 2004, and it did not extend even a single Central law to Jammu & Kashmir. It may appear ludicrous but it is a fact that its election manifesto for the Jammu & Kashmir assembly elections (2008) was totally silent on Article 370. Earlier in 1996, Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee had even declared at Tangdhar (Kashmir) that Article 370 shall ever remain part of the Indian Constitution.

    • In "Tingbjerg: one neighborhood's nightmare" at Human Rights Service, October 26, Bruce Bawer gives a glimpse of the kind of thing that will be happening in the United States before too long, unless there is some drastic change in numerous policies:
    • Few people outside of Denmark have heard of Tingbjerg. It's a residential neighborhood in northwestern Copenhagen. About 6500 people live there, down from about 10,000 in the 1970s. Today the great majority of those residents are Muslims. As the neighborhood has become increasingly Muslim, it's also been increasingly plagued by gang violence, burglaries, car-burnings, vandalism, and other offenses. Over the years, the members of Tingbjerg's non-Muslim minority have come to feel increasingly vulnerable and ill at ease in their community. Many have moved out.

* VivekaJyoti *: Organized anti-National forces of ‘Islamic Terrorism’ in Kerala have now launched a pogram of ‘Cultural Terrorism’ against the non-Muslim women

  • tags: no_tag

    • Several houses at exorbitant rents have been hired in different parts of Kerala for conducting this preplanned romantic operation. These houses are fully furnished homes with all creature comforts to make the lured non-Muslim girls feel comfortable with their newly-begotten Muslim boy-friends. These carefully designed dens of vice are also fully stocked with all kinds of Islamic conversion propaganda materials. The Muslim youths have been specially trained to take all these non-Hindu women into confidence by promising them immediate marriage, children and motherhood and very much more, if only they would convert to Islam. The non-Muslim women are brainwashed for Islamic conversion and made suitable for Islamic marriage with in a period of 6 months. Specially prepared videos are shown to the young girls in these ‘comfortable homes’ by handsome Islamic youth, showing the glory and grandeur of Islam and how a spontaneous act of immediate conversion to Islam would enable these young girls to enter upon a new life of marital bliss, prolific motherhood, material prosperity and ever lasting spiritual peace and happiness.
    • A target of 4 kids in 1200 days has been fixed for each Muslim youth for luring and trapping a non-Muslim girl for this Love Jihad Operation, caught in the treacherous swamp of Jihadi romance. Each Muslim youth has been given a time frame (target) of 2 weeks for successfully luring a non-Muslim woman into this Islamic trap. If the attempt to lure a girl does not succeed within a period of 2 weeks, then the concerned Muslim youth should turn to another non-Muslim girl and try the same luring and trapping Islamic conversion operation with unfailing Islamic zest and server.

      College students and working women are the prime targets. Once a Muslim youth succeeds in completing his mission of luring a young Hindu / Christian woman into the carnal trap, the concerned Islamic organisation will give an amount of Rs 1,00,000 as initial financial help for each Muslim youth who succeeds in this basically criminal mission. In addition, each Muslim youth is also given a free mobile phone, free bike and free fashionable dress to ply their Love trade starting with bogus gesture of love and romance!

      It is understood that there is an unlimited flow of money for this kind of Love Jihad from the Middle East. Each district has its own Zonal Chairman to oversee this mission. The main aim of this organization is to make a list of Hindu and Christian girls in each area, even prior to the college admission and specially shortlist those women whom they feel are more vulnerable and who can be brainwashed into Islamic conversion with out any cultural resistance. Such vulnerable women are specially targeted and chased by the Love Jihad organisations.
    • The above table brings out the following facts:
      1. The total number of victims of an organized Love Jihad is 2866
      2. Both Hindu and Christian girls have been the victims.
      3. Only less than 10% of the victims managed to escape from the evil clutches of Love Jihadis.
      4. The Muslim dominated Malabar accounts for 1674 victims (more than 60%).
      5. Kasargode District tops the list of victims with 586 incidents.
    • Three years back itself Durga Vahini and other Hindu organisations had given a detailed report about ‘Love Jihad’ to the Kerala State’s Home department, But the report was ignored on the specious ground that it was submitted by so called ‘Communal Hindu organisations’! And now the Media and Police today have woken up from their known pseudo- slumber when Christian bodies like Kerala Catholic Bishops Council (KCBC) too have started feeling the heat and started complaining and campaigning against Love Jihad in Kerala.
