Working For The Rights & Survival Of The Oppressed

“There is a higher court than the court of justice and that is the court of conscience It supercedes all other courts. ”
– Mahatma Gandhi

– Vested Interests , Criminals silencing a journalist
Your excellency,
Even after 62 years of india’s independence , the plight of commonman has worsened. Corrupt public servants , corrupt judges , corrupt police , etc are proving to be parasites leading 5-star lifestyles at taxpayer’s expense. They in their greed for money , bribe are aiding & abetting terrorists , separatists , naxalites, underworld mafia , etc covertly & overtly , backstabbing our motherland. These corrupt public servants are more cruel than Jalianwallah Bagh butcher General Dyer of british army. If Mahatma Gandhi was alive today , he would have been disgusted with the present way of democratic government , functioning of public servants & would have died heart broken. If our freedom martyrs like sri.Bhagath Singh or Sri. Madan Lal Dingra or Sri.Subhash Chandra Bose would have been alive , they would have given a befitting reply to this corrupt police , corrupt judges , public servants.
Whenever , a commonman raises his voice for justice , he is silenced in various ways by the criminal nexus. The said criminal nexus has previously tried to silence me in many ways including attempts to murder , closure of newspaper , etc , now the same criminal nexus is at it again. They are trying to silence me , to close my newspaper , to foist false cases against me , all for asking the following QUESTIONS , which public servants are afraid to answer. Even if they succeed in silencing me , TRUTH NEVER DIES, THE COMPLICITY OF HIGHEST CONSTITUTIONAL FUNCTIONARIES IN COVERING-UP , HIDING CRIMES IS FOR ALL THERE TO SEE. If Anything untoward happens to me or my family members , both of you H.E.Honourable President of India & Honourable chief Justice of India will be responsible , accountable for that. If police or other law enforcing agencies , ask me- the complainant , to come over to police station repeatedly for inquiry ( as they did previously) instead of asking the accused high & mighty persons , to come over to police station at least once , the police , the court & the government is liable to pay me damages .
In India corruption has spread it’s tentacles far & wide. Corrupt few among judiciary are selling judicial orders , police are fixing innocents letting off the rich criminals , manipulating evidences , people’s representatives are taking money even for asking questions in parliament , for releasing money under MPLAD scheme , etc. many of the public servants are selling their official duties for some consideration. These greedy corrupt public servants are worse than street side prostitutes who sell off their own body for a living. However the corrupt public servants who take hefty pay & perks from the government sell off their official duties , their ethics , honesty , in their greed for more money.There are even worse corrupt parasites , police who even take commission from these hapless street side prostitutes.
Take two recent examples , in mysore a little kid of a villager was not properly attended to for nearly 15 days by any doctor in government K.R.Hospital , just for the reason that villager was unable to pay bribe. Finally the kid died in the hospital. Even in ESIC Hospital , mysore although the services are paid by employees by monthly contribution , services are dismal . almost every official in ESIC Mysore demand bribe for consultation , medical test , issue of medicines , bill reimbursement , etc.
Now , take another example how the flyover collapsed in delhi or 15 storey building collapsed in Bangalore. Still mystery shrouds , cover up is taking place with respect to this building collapse. Is it not due to the failure of town planning authorities like BDA , BBMP, etc ? there is complete mystery regarding the casualties of this building collapse , what labour commissioner is doing ? even in mysore , at Infosys construction project site many casualties have taken place , but not properly recoreded by authorities , why ?
Now , the hard fact is that if one has money he can do anything & get away . at this juncture , disillusioned with the corrupt government system , the educated unemployed or victimized youths become a fertile ground for raising of anti social movements like naxalism , mafia or separatist movements , religious fundamentalists , etc. this has already happened in India.
This is an open appeal to your excellency & the honest few in public service , to check this growth & to take India towards Mahatma’s swaraj. The public servants mentioned in the following articles are shielding corrupt criminals , by refusing to answer questions , will you make them cough up TRUTH IN FULL ? e-voice has appealed to authorites offering services in apprehending tax thieves & other criminals , but public servants are not interested to utilize our services lest their criminal pals are get caught ? ARE YOU READY TO CATCH TAX THIEVES & OTHER CRIMINALS BY TAKING OUR SERVICES ?
Bihar type mob justice cases will become more frequent leading to
anarchy , rise of naxalism , terrorism & underworld in india. The
cause for all this CORRUPT PUBLIC SERVANTS in India. When common
people don’t get justice by police , by courts of law , rich mighty
criminals get away from punishment & people’s representatives in
parliament / state legislatures legalizes the crimes of their rich
friends , criminals , anti nationals , the justice becomes a mirage to
common man , democracy a farce.
Just consider following examples , PMO official leaks out nuclear
secrets to enemy countries endangering the security of India , a
government official gives driving license , ration card , voter
identity card to a Pakistani terrorist , a police official issues gun
license to anti national Terrorist , a police official applies 3rd
degree torture to a poor innocent to cover up rich criminal , a police
official murders a poor innocent in lock-up , fake encounter to cover
up rich criminal , a judge issues bail , other judicial orders for a
price to anti national , a police officer destroys evidence , delays
investigation to aid rich criminal , etc , all these public servants
are least bothered about either the well being / security of our
motherland India or our countrymen . they are concerned only about
the kick backs they get . even higher officials , courts are not
taking any action against such corrupt anti national officials , why ?
In these circumstances , the aggrieved mass of people to protect the
security of our motherland India ,to uphold law , to protect
themselves , in exercise of their CONSTITUTIONALLY ENSHRINED
FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES ( ie to uphold constitution of India , to protect
the unity , integrity of the country , to protect the rights of fellow
country men ) eliminate , kill such CORRUPT ANTI NATIONAL PUBLIC
SERVANTS when all the avenues for seeking justice have failed , is it
not justified in the interest of country ?
Do remember that hard liners among our independence struggle like shri
. subash Chandra bose , shri. Bhagath singh & others have contributed
to our independence struggle immensely. However their actions at that
point of time as per then prevailing laws of britishers were termed as
illegal , although it did good to our motherland & our countrymen.
However in democracy this should not happen as this violence leads to
anarchy , more violence. this anarchy can be controlled only by the
corrupt public servants , whose making it is . they must mend their
corrupt practices , must strictly work for the welfare of our
motherland , the courts must punish the corrupt public servants
severely. Then alone bapuji’s true swaraj can be built.
The sad fact is that instead of mending their ways , the corrupt
public servants have increased their personal security & taking more
and more kick backs. God only must protect them from dog’s death at
the hands of mass of people.
We at e-Voice for Justice believes in equitable justice ,
peace & non violence and hereby only analyzing the causes for bihar
type mob violences , rise of naxalism , terrorism , under world in
India. Our analysis is a social pointer to the things to come in near
future , in India , ways to protect democracy in India.
In the democratic india , whenever a citizen suffers from injustice ,
violation of constitutionally guaranteed fundamental rights / human
rights he can appeal to the higher Authorities for justice , then to
the next higher authority in the hierarchy . if it fails he can
approach the police , courts of justice. Finally he can appeal to the
first citizen of the country & supreme court of india . Now ,
corruption is more prevalent in police & judiciary. To my numerous
appeals for justice , e-voice’s appeals for justice concerning public good
, the public servants have failed to perform , the police have taken
JUSTICE OF INDIA are mum. They have failed to perform their
constitutional duties. All the doors of justice are closed for me.
e-voice has brought to the notice of government cases of
rights violations , crimes , tax evasions by public servants &
corporate bodies , it also offerred it’s services in apprehending
corporate criminals stealing crores of tax money. there was no
response . the police & authorities are keen , over zealous in
apprehending & prosecuting a pick-pcketer stealing Rs.10 , where as it
cover-ups the crimes of corporate criminals stealing lakhs , crores of
tax money. the government even rewards such corporate criminals with
tax exemptions , subsidies , etc. Is it equitable justice ? true
democracy of mahatma’s vision ? This type of corrupt administration in
india since independence has made the lives of commoners miserable and
is the main driving force for the rise of NAXALISM , TERRORISM /
However violence is not the solution, violence breeds more violence &
mahatma’s democracy true
swaraj cann’t be set up on the basis of violence. When all the doors
of justice are closed for a commonman ( sufferer of gross
injustices ) without financial might or contacts , he has the
following options :
1. to take law into his own hands & settle scores. But it is illegal
although naturally justified .
2. to suffer more & more injustices reconciling to the fact , ground
reality that democracy in india is fake only a facade.
3. To committ suicide to runaway from all injustices. But that is
illegal & cowardice.
4. To spread awareness among public about corruption in police ,
judiciary , public service & to kindle the light of crusade in them
within legal democratic frame work although presently sufferring from
gross injustices. All in the hope that tommorrow will be bright &
sunny , with the dawn of mahatma gandhi’s swaraj , as clearly told by poet Ravindranath Tagore and bow our heads to our great motherland India.
Your excellency , kindly tell me – tell the common people which way to take . JAI HIND . VANDE MATARAM.
Your’s sincerely,

Police Reforms
Police Reforms: Too Important to Neglect, Too Urgent to Delay

CHRI’s police reforms programme aims to realise increased demand for and achievement of police accountability and reform throughout the Commonwealth.
The police reforms programme targets policy makers, police organisations, activists at the grassroots, civil society groups, the media and the general public to further its aims for reform and the implementation of democratic policing. It seeks to do this through a combination of advocacy, education, research and networking.
CHRI published a report on police accountability in the Commonwealth for the 2005 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. This report explores the issues around policing in the Commonwealth, sets out a democratic policing framework, considers the critical limbs of accountability that must be in place in a democratic police organisation and puts forward a roadmap for reform. Electronic copies of the report are available here, or you can request a hardcopy here.
What is police reform and why do we need it?
In too many countries, governments are failing in their primary duty to provide the public with an honest, efficient, effective police service that ensures the rule of law and a environment of safety and security. Today, membership to the Commonwealth is premised on countries practicing democracy – and democratic governance requires democratic policing. The only legitimate policing is policing that helps create an environment free from fear and conducive to the realisation of people’s human rights.
The existing police systems in many Commonwealth states are a legacy of colonial rule that have been shaped by post-colonial histories. The consequences of poor policing include brutality and torture, extra-judicial executions, a lack of due process, impunity, corruption, bias and discrimination and public fear, anger and resentment.
The Commonwealth has some inspiring examples of governments and police organisations working towards reform. Some police organisations have undergone varying degrees of modernisation and transformation. Impetus for reform has generally arisen out of public concern over rising crime or from incidents of police abuse or failure, accompanied by a willingness to learn and address changing contexts.
What is democratic policing?
CHRI believes that democratic nations need democratic policing, which gives practical meaning to the Commonwealth’s promise of democracy and good governance and is applicable to any context – rich or poor, large or small, diverse or homogenous.
Critical to the success of democratic policing is the principle that the police should be held accountable: not just by government, but by a wider network of agencies and organisations, working on behalf of the interests of the people, within a human rights framework.
Democratic policing is both a process and an outcome. The democratic values of the Commonwealth lay down a sound foundation for the development of democratic policing.
A democratic police organisation is one that is
• accountable to the law and not a law unto itself
• is accountable to democratic government structures and the community
• is transparent in its activities
• gives top operational priority to protecting the safety and rights of individuals and private groups
• protects human rights
• provides society with professional services
• is representative of the community it serves

The Constitution of India does not explicitly grant a right to information. However, the Supreme Court of India (the country’s highest court) has held in several cases that the right to information is implicit in the constitutionally enshrined rights to freedom of speech and expression (Article 19 (1)(a) and right to life and liberty (Article 21).
The first Supreme Court ruling on the right to information dates back to 1975. However, no attempt was made by either the Central or the State Governments to implement a simple and effective access to information regime until after the launching of campaigns for freedom of information by civil society. (Notably, effective right to information legislation is important even where a constitutional right exists because it ensures that people do not have to go to court every time they want to exercise the right, and puts in place simple, clear and regular procedures which can be easily utilised by all.)
The first and most well-known right to information movement in India was the Mazdoor Kisan Shakti Sangathan (MKSS), which began its right to information work in Rajasthan during the early 1990s. MKSS’s struggle for access to village accounts and transparency in administration is widely credited with having sparked off the right to information movement across India.
From the mid-1990s, a national campaign for the enactment of a central law on right to information gained momentum. After much struggle, the Central Government enacted the Indian Freedom of Information Act in 2002. The Act represents an important step towards actualising the Right to Information, but has been criticised for not going far enough. More problematically, the Act is yet to come into force, since the rules to implement the Act are yet to be formulated by the Central Government.
While the campaign for national legislation was going on, in the meantime some significant breakthroughs were achieved at the State-level. Tamil Nadu was the first State to enact a right to information law, in 1997, followed by Goa in the same year. To date, seven other States have passed legislation – Rajasthan (2000), Karnataka (2000), Delhi (2001), Maharashtra (2002), Assam (2002), Madhya Pradesh (2003) and Jammu and Kashmir (2003). Campaign efforts in other States have also had some success – Uttar Pradesh framed an executive code on access to information in 2000 and draft bills have now been prepared by the Governments of Kerala and Orissa.
As one of the leading campaigners for the right to information, CHRI has sought to generate awareness on this issue, support civil society campaigns and provide input into the law making process, drawing on our knowledge of international best practice. CHRI’s advocacy has included the making of policy submissions, articles in the media and training and workshops. CHRI has also published several booklets, fliers, brochures and posters.

Prison Reforms
Checking, Correcting and Preventing Human Rights Violations through
Community Involvement in Prisons

Places of incarceration are largely impermeable to the outside world. Inaccessibility and lack of accountability, coupled with the indifference of the public towards prisoners have led to gross violation of their rights and the current condition of Indian prisons.
The philosophy underlying the 1894 Prisons Act has since been superseded by minimum standards generally accepted as best practice both with in India and by international agreement, reflecting wide consensus on standards applicable in the context of correctional administration. At another level, even the prescribed standards are disregarded and an overlay of common practice now serves as rule rather than the statute. Prisons in India also find themselves at the bottom of the budgetary priorities of most governments, having scarcely any resources at their disposal and subject to a seemingly entrenched apathy toward prisoners and prison administration.
The CHRI prison programme works to remedy this, undertaking studies and advocacy projects to address prison conditions, reform prison management, and foster an attitude of cooperation in place of the prevailing indifference and discrimination characteristic of the criminal justice system.
The organization works through prison visits to inform its advocacy – monitoring, recording and reporting on prison conditions and practices followed on the ground to inform constructive dialogue with government officials, members of the judiciary and civil society to keep reform on the agenda, and working closely with other groups and academic institutions to draw on their specialist knowledge.
CHRI initially worked towards re-invigorating the institution of prison visitors as an external and independent oversight mechanism, assessing their performance, identifying problems and conducting capacity building programmes. The programme has since expanded to focus on conditions of detention, accountability mechanisms and wider government policy.

INDIA: Law-enforcement agencies made accountable to the rule of law is an urgent need
The Indian media often report with contempt the killing and maiming of the citizens by non-state actors. The limited debate in the country upon the issue is centred on the illegitimacy of violence used by the terrorists, insurgents and armed resistance movements, and is highly polarised. Except for the effort of a few publications like the Tehelka, the deliberations so far have missed a crucial aspect, the issue of disproportionate use of violence by the state upon its own citizens.

The significance of this subject is on the logic that the state is the custodian of the law and is principally responsible for governing by the rule of law. It implies that the state must ensure equality before the law and must not allow the arbitrary abuse of authority and power by its agencies. Further, it casts a legal obligation upon the state that it can resort to force only through legitimate and controlled procedures, that too in extraordinary circumstances where the lives of its citizens are under immediate threat.

The constitutional framework in the country that guarantees rule of law to its citizens thus restricts the state from unleashing disproportionate violence upon its citizens. Unfortunately, the Indian state is engaged in systematically negating this legal premise for the past several years.

A cursory glance at the statistics produced by the National Human Rights Commission of India (NHRC), brings this fact to the fore. From April 2001 to March 2009, the NHRC has recorded 1184 deaths in police custody; which is murder committed by the police, without any sanction or approval of a court of law. Further analysis of this data brings out even more startling facts.

Most of these murders have taken place in relatively calm and problem-free states in the country, with Maharashtra state having the dubious distinction of topping the list with 192 murders. The other states ranked high in the list are Uttar Pradesh (128), Gujarat (113), Andhra Pradesh (85) and West Bengal (83). All these states are within the peaceful and prosperous parts of the country, with no insurgent activities.

It becomes apparent what would be the state of affairs in states like the Jammu and Kashmir, and in the seven states forming the Northeastern territory of the country where armed insurgent activities have been going on for the past 60 years. Deaths in police custody and extra judicial executions in fake encounters are rampant in these states, and the perpetrators of the crime go unpunished. For instance, in a recent statement, the Director General of Police in Manipur state, Mr. Y Joykumar Singh, said that in the past eleven months his officers have murdered more than 260 persons. Of course, the officer added that all those who are killed are terrorists, murdered in armed encounters.

It is a fact that these statistics is a gross underestimation of the actual numbers since only very few cases reach the NHRC and/or judiciary. The reason behind this is that often the victims’ families, being from the most underprivileged backgrounds, have no means or the courage to approach the courts. The complete absence of a witness protection programme or even a law to that effect, coupled with court delays often makes complaining against the law enforcement agency a suicidal act in the country.

Further, in states like Manipur, the security forces have unlimited and unaccounted power to carryout their operations under the statutory protection of the draconian law, The Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act of 1958. This law allows even a non-commissioned officer to shoot to kill based on mere suspicion in order to “maintain public order”.

The euphemism, “to maintain public order” is widely misused by the security forces for unleashing unbridled terror where they operate, thus supporting a trigger-happy culture of governance. The July 23 killing of Mr. Chongkham Sanjit and Ms. Rabina Devi in Manipur, exposes the degree of lawlessness resorted to by the security forces in these areas. For further information please see: AHRC-UAC-098-2009

Placed in this context, the recent developments in the country have been highly disturbing. Despite all the evidences pointing to the worthlessness of the idea in delivering peace to the disturbed areas by use of force, the state is increasing its pitch for declaring war on its own people. Even more unsettling is the fact that the union home minister himself leads the campaign.

An example of this is the home ministry’s argument for a cohesive, clinical and all out operation against the Maoists named as Operation Green Hunt. What is missing in the aggressive rhetoric for a war on Maoists is the question about the people living in the area — poor, hapless tribal — marginalised to the peripheries of the Indian state for long. Caught between two warring parties armed to the teeth, the tribal pay the heaviest price in this battle.

Yet, they are nowhere cited in the public discourse. The only occasion they appeared to be included in the discussion was when the government decided to withdraw more than 100000 cases against the tribal ‘to win their hearts and minds’. Cases that were slapped on them for ‘stealing’ firewood, honey and other minor forest produce and a constant source of their exploitation by the police and the forest department were withdrawn.

The government did not care to answer why these cases were charged against them in the first place! After all, they have been living in these forests for centuries and the forest belonged to them. Why did it take an armed rebellion to force the state to think about their plight, and why the government could not act on its own for this long are two important questions that are yet to be answered.

Similar is the case with the people of Nagaland, Manipur, Assam, the Jammu and Kashmir and other states hit by insurgent activities in the country. The people residing in these states are compelled to resort to war like efforts just to ensure survival. Day after day, they are forced to walk through an alarmingly reducing narrow corridor of neutral space, maintaining equal distance from the sate and the non-state actors. In addition, the state does not help its case for garnering their support by the amount of terror it unleashes. After all, the state is the legal guardian of all its citizens, for it is the state who had solemnly promised and which had been bestowed the authority under the constitution to protect and preserve the inalienable human rights of its citizens.

For this reason alone, extrajudicial executions committed by the police and other state agencies deserve not only the strongest condemnation but also concentrated action against them. The deaths in police custody, committed with impunity provided by the uniform and authority, instigates not only public anger and protest but also hatred towards the state. The insurgents, whichever colour they belong to, tap this hatred for mobilising people into an armed rebellion against the state.

For this reason, declaring a war on its own people is a humongous error of judgment on the part of the state. What the state needs to do is reengaging those who are up against it, addressing all their concerns. The state also needs to go for a systematic and systemic overhaul of the system and correcting the flaws within the administration at the earliest. For this, it is elementary to conduct a revision of state policies ensuring public participation.

Further, guaranteeing equality before the law and ensuring punishment to the perpetrators of violence including those enjoying political power is required. The country needs to put an immediate end to murder in police custody and fake encounters. Those who are responsible for committing these acts must be prosecuted, with no exception to incidents that have happened in the past. The government needs to put people in command of their life, their habitat and resources and stop the state-sponsored corporate plunder of natural resources. The future, otherwise, does not seem that bright.

The Supreme Court of India has repeatedly warned the government that ‘custodial torture, violence and killing’ as ‘a naked violence of human dignity’ and a ‘calculated assault’ upon the people and their fundamental rights. The judgments delivered in the D.K. Basu and the Bhajan Kaur cases categorically declare that it is the state’s duty to ensure that persons live, behave, and are treated like human beings. The state must neither condone nor tolerate deprivation, oppression and violation of the right to life and liberty.

Yet, custodial killings in India have assumed alarming proportions, that it has adversely affected the belief of the citizens in the rule of law and the administration of justice in the country. Arbitrary misuse of authority with statutory impunity has also demoralised the security agencies in the country. If the functionaries of the state become lawbreakers, it results in a situation where might means right, leading to lawlessness and anarchy.

The Supreme Court has also directed the government that it must undertake innovative measures to deal with terrorism and has said that ‘state terrorism would only provide legitimacy to terrorism which is against the rule of law’. The state must thus ensure that its agents deployed for combating terrorism acts within the bounds of law and do not become law unto themselves.

India cannot afford to kill anymore of its citizens without plummeting into a state of anarchy. The prophetic vision of the court has proved to be true. It is now the duty of the state to undo its wrongs and prevent the ensuing anarchy.

It is time for the government to put an immediate end to the use of arbitrary means in dealing with dissent to safeguard the life and liberty of the citizens. The government cannot reject its constitutional and sacred duty to the citizens by becoming the unlawful arbiter and the executioner of humanity.

INDIA: Media must wakeup to the violence committed by the state
The existence of independent and strong media is a prerequisite for the working of a free and just society that governs itself by the rule of law. The role of media in establishing such a society is to act as the eyes and ears of the people, forming the collective conscience of the nation. After all what else does a democracy mean than letting its citizens make decisions that affect their lives? Independent media help the citizens in making informed choices by bringing news and perspectives to them. In short, free and impartial media is an important component to a democratic framework like its justice institutions.

The relative success of the democratic experiment in India in comparison to its neighbors owes considerable debt to its media. The robust resistance of the media to the declaration of emergency, one of the darkest hours in Indian democracy, is an example. It was the media that had the courage, augmented with exemplary resistance put up by all political and social forces, that openly opposed the dictatorial declaration of the emergency by the then prime minister, Mrs. Indira Gandhi.

The Indian media did not spare even Jawaharlal Nehru, the first and perhaps the most loved prime minister of the country, when few of his cabinet colleagues were accused of corruption. It was the media that had courage to expose the gruesome events during the Gujarat state-led pogrom of innocent Muslims in that State. Bringing out the fascist nature of the rightwing Hindutva groups leading the carnage was perhaps the singular achievement of the media, leading to the erosion of support for the politics of hatred in India.

Viewed in this context, the recent developments in the Indian media are worrying to say the least. This is in spite of the contributions the media have made in exposing corruption, for instance, the shady arms deal during the National Democratic Alliance regime by the Tehelka, the petrol pump allotment scam during the same period by the Indian Express and the telecom allocation scam by the current United Progressive Alliance regime.

Similarly unambiguous is the media’s role in fighting against communalism, by continuously reacting against the witch hunt of the minorities by some political groups. Equally substantial is the role the media played in publishing the criminal and financial backgrounds of many candidates, who contested and eventually lost, in the recently held parliament elections. While the media has definitely held its ground and stood true to its prestigious past, on many current issues it has been regularly faltering.

Unfortunately, the media do not appear to be caring for its own record when it comes to the reporting of acts of terror committed by the state, while it comes down heavily on those committed by non-state actors. The media, both electronic and print versions, have been instrumental in enlightening the citizenry about the use of dastardly and mindless violence committed by non-state actors upon innocent civilian populations.

The argument put forward by the media to condemn the violence is plain and simple, that there are no issues in a democracy which cannot be sorted out by deliberations and peaceful means of protest, and that dissent can always be dealt with politically and democratically and violence, not sanctioned by the law, is intolerable in a democratic set up.

The media however appear to be swallowing its logic by failing to give equal seriousness against state-sponsored violence. Extrajudicial executions, torturing of suspects, murder of prisoners and under trials, and disappearances are quite rampant in India. These characters of a failing state require equal treatment or probably more attention than that is given to violence committed by non-state actors. Yet, the media do not give enough time and space to discuss these issues.

India has witnessed more than 1184 deaths in police custody according to the data published by the National Human Rights Commission. The data is concerning cases reported to the Commission between April 2001 and March 2009. Of these, 601 custodial deaths have taken place in Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh and West Bengal, all peaceful states with no insurgency or other armed militia operating within. Yet, this news appeared in an almost invisible corner in the print media as a single column news in the inside pages. The electronic media ignored the news all together.

Similar is the case of fake encounters. Instead of condemning it and demanding prosecutions the media have actually been instrumental in the glorifying the killers in uniform. ‘Encounter specialist and super cop’ are media inventions in their attempt in showering accolades upon murderer police officers for ‘successful’ encounters. Some of these media heroes are now in jail or killed. For instance, the former Assistant Commissioner of Delhi Police, Mr. Rajbir Singh, was killed by a friend allegedly over disputes regarding his illegal investments, Mr. Daya Nayak of Maharashtra police, is in jail facing corruption charges and for his alleged nexus with the underworld. Mr. D.G. Banjara, Deputy Inspector General of Gujarat Police is in jail for his proven role in fake encounters. Even after the exposure of the real faces of these murderers in uniform, the media have singularly failed to get its act together barring a few exceptions.

After all, just how many times can one find such brazen acts of lawlessness like a live recording of the murder of two civilians by the police as it happened in Manipur? Just how many times the police, paramilitary forces and the army will let the media impartially cover their operations exposing their utter disregard for the rule of law as well as the constitution?
Any act of terror, violence, and extrajudicial executions is a crime against humanity. The question who did it is irrelevant. No law or ideology can legitimise the killings of innocent civilians, unfortunately caught between the state and its opponents. Murder or other forms of violence by the non-state actors based on whatever justifications – religion, ethnicity or ideology – should be unambiguously condemned. So should be the case with extrajudicial and illegal killings and other forms of violence committed by the state.

For one fact, unlike the non-state actors, the state warrants even sterner criticism for torture, killings and disappearances of its citizens as it is the state’s duty to protect, promote and fulfil constitutional guarantees. The state deserves a far stricter scrutiny as it derives the legitimacy to use force by being the custodian of the law, guaranteeing to use it only for the protection of the citizens and not for killing them.

The studied silence maintained by the media, in this context, is unfortunate. A single murder, unsanctioned by the law, committed by state agents should let the press hit the panic button. 1184, is an exception. Yet the country’s media chose to observe blissful silence. This prevents the possibility of exposing the countless unreported ones, which the media could have exposed.

The Asian Human Rights Commission expects that this silence is not from complicity, and that the Indian media will wake up to its legacy of standing by the people and the truth that they have the right to know.

INDIA: True democracy requires popular participation

The AHRC is publishing its 2009 annual human rights report on India. A pre-publication version of the report can be downloaded at:
In the first week of November this year, the Director General of Police, Mr. Y. Joykumar Singh, of Manipur state publically admitted that 260 persons had been killed so far by the state agencies in that state this year. The officer added that, according to the government, the deceased are terrorists, and that the security agencies killed them in armed encounters. Joykumar’s statement reflects the general sentiment of the government of India and that of the state governments in dealing with dissent.

In the past 12 months, the government has intensified its engagement with the separatist and extremist forces operating in the country. Unfortunately, the tone of engagement is that of violence. The commonly used tactic is to let the state agents engage in murder with impunity, popularly known in the country as encounter killing, a euphemism for extrajudicial executions. The apparent logic is that violence will be dealt with violence.

The alarming number of lives lost in the anti-Naxalite operations in states like Orissa, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh so far, stands proof to the systematic execution of this logic. On the contrary, the continuance of extreme leftist operations in these states and the unabated disruptive activities by non-state actors in states like Manipur proves that this logic is wrong.

The state’s engagement in violence has come with a cost. The police and paramilitary units are engaged in open, arbitrary and brutal use of force throughout the country with impunity. The police firing in Narayanpatana in Orissa and the July 23 killing in Imphal Manipur are just two examples. In spite of widespread condemnation of the two incidents, the officers involved are not punished. There have been no investigations into these incidents.

The use of extreme violence by the state has pushed the people further away from the government. In fact, there were several isolated as well as nationwide protests against the use of violence by the state in the country in this year.

As early as 14 December 1993, the National Human Rights Commission of India (NHRC) instructed the Chief Secretaries of the states to ensure that every case of custodial death and rape is reported to it within twenty-four hours of occurrence, failing which an adverse inference would be drawn by the Commission. On 10 August 1995, the Commission requested the Chief Ministers to ensure that post-mortem examinations of deaths in custody be videographed. On 27 March 1997, Chief Ministers were again requested to adopt a Model Autopsy Form, prepared by the Commission, and to use for this purpose.

None of these instructions are followed by the state agencies. Neither has the NHRC taken any steps to ensure the compliance of its directives. As of today, the NHRC has deteriorated to a namesake entity in the country, fated to function for the past two years without a Chairperson or adequate resources.

The recent conduct of the NHRC like the condoning of extrajudicial executions, torture and starvation deaths and rejecting complaints after accepting government reports, has become a reason for concern. It raises suspicion about the impartiality of the Commission as a national human rights body. The performance of the NHRC has deteriorated to such degree that it appears that the Commission is developing its expertise in summarily dismissing complaints, an action that negates the Commission’s statutory mandate.

The state agencies on the other hand are exploiting this expanded space of impunity available to them. For instance, the use of torture is endemic in the country. The government’s response to torture is a mere Bill. The Bill if enacted as a law is destined to fail. The ulterior intention of the government to continue providing impunity to its agents is clear from the Bill. For instance, the proposed definition of torture in the Bill does not meet the standards as prescribed in Article 1 (1) of the International Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.

Equally disturbing is the fate of the Dalit community in the country. Brutal forms of caste based discrimination are practiced in India. Of particular concern is the laxity with which the government has dealt with the practice of manual scavenging so far, facilitating its unabated continuity. This is despite series of legislations enacted over a period spanning 62 years prescribing statutory prohibition to the practice. Even the administration in the national capital has failed to deal with the problem.

Caste based discrimination is also one of the important impediment in realising the right to food in India. Today, the government of India does not have any reliable data concerning the number of poor persons in the country. Over the years, the government has resorted to shameless gerrymandering of the statistical data to prove that conditions of the poor in India are improving.

Experts like Mr. Dilip D’Souza argue that systematic data corruption has adversely affected the possibility of the poor in receiving government assistance. At the same time observations made by experts like Professor Utsa Patnaik that the per-capita food availability in India as of today is worse than the 1943 Bengal famine is ignored by the government.

Dishonesty of the government is one of the reasons for the continuity of starvation and malnutrition in India. It is most evident in cases of starvation deaths. It is the practice of the government to deny that deaths have occurred from starvation or malnutrition. Even worse is the reaction of the national bodies like the NHRC that accepts such denial as evidence and dismisses complaints from victims instead of helping them.

Yet, these are issues that a democracy can resolve. The solution however depends upon peoples’ participation. While the civil society can play a vital role in organising the people, it is the responsibility of the government to guarantee that the peoples’ voices are reflected in government’s actions.

The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) calls upon the government of India to find means and occasions to encourage the people to engage in constructive dialogues with the state. December 10, the International Human Rights Day could be one such occasion.

Statement by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay
The concept of non-discrimination lies at the heart of human rights.

For this reason, it has been designated the official theme of this Human Rights Day, which occurs every year on the anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. And for this and many other reasons it should be an unofficial theme every day, every year, for everyone.

Twenty-six of the Universal Declaration’s 30 Articles begin with the words “Everyone…” or “No one…” Everyone should enjoy all human rights. No one should be excluded. All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. Non-discrimination must prevail.

Today, we have a whole range of rights-based international treaties imbued throughout with the concept of non-discrimination. These include, for example, Conventions on the rights of the child, rights of people with disabilities, rights of refugees and of migrant workers; Conventions dedicated to the elimination of racial discrimination and discrimination against women; as well as treaties dealing with labour, health and religion. These legally binding standards are complemented by important UN declarations detailing minority rights and the rights of indigenous peoples.

These international laws and standards are supported by thousands of national and regional laws and institutions. Quite a few countries now have truly universal education, and a smaller number have universal public health systems. Taken together all of this marks an extraordinary celebration of humankind’s ability and aspiration to create a world of equal opportunity and equal treatment under the law. And many millions of people have benefited as a result.

People of all sorts have something to offer. When we embrace diversity, we bring extra richness and depth to our societies.

Yet discrimination is still rampant.

Women work two-thirds of the world’s working hours and produce half of the world’s food, yet earn only 10 percent of the world’s income and own less than one percent of the world’s property. Despite significant improvements over the past century, women and girls are still discriminated against to some degree in all societies and to a great degree in many. Every day countless numbers of women are sexually or physically abused, and the vast majority of their abusers go unpunished and future abuse is undeterred.

Minorities in all regions of the world continue to face serious threats, discrimination and racism, and are frequently excluded from fully taking part in the economic, political, social and cultural life available to the majorities in the countries or societies where they live.

Similar problems face the estimated 370 million indigenous people who make up five percent of the world’s population, but 15 percent of its poorest people. They are often marginalized, deprived of many fundamental rights – including land and property – and lack access to basic services.

Racial and ethnic discrimination are also to be found all across the planet, and remain one of the most dangerous forms of discrimination. Left unchecked, or actively fanned, they can all too easily lead to hatred, violence, and – in the worst cases – push on up the scale to full-blown conflict, crimes against humanity and genocide.

Discrimination based on religion or belief can be equally destructive. In certain countries, members of certain groups are restricted in how they can exercise their religion or belief and deprived of their fundamental rights. In extreme cases such conditions may lead to sectarian violence, killing and conflict. Stereotyping can lead to stigmatization and isolationism.

Refugees and migrants are widely discriminated against, including in rich countries where men, women and children who have committed no crime are often held in detention for prolonged periods. They are frequently discriminated against by landlords, employers and state-run authorities, and stereotyped and vilified by some political parties, media organizations and members of the public.

Many other groups face discrimination to a greater or lesser degree. Some of them are easily definable such as persons with disabilities, stateless people, gays and lesbians, members of particular castes and the elderly. Others may span several different groups and find themselves discriminated against on several different levels as a result.

Those who are not discriminated against often find it hard to comprehend the suffering and humiliation that discrimination imposes on their fellow individual human beings. Nor do they always understand the deeply corrosive effect it has on society at large.

Discrimination feeds mistrust, resentment, violence, crime and insecurity and makes no economic sense, since it reduces productivity. It has no beneficial aspects for society whatsoever. Yet we continue to practice it – virtually all of us – often as a casual reflex, without even realizing what we are doing.

I would therefore like to encourage people everywhere – politicians, officials, businesses leaders, civil society, national human rights institutions, the media, religious leaders, teachers, students, and each and every individual – to honour Human Rights Day 2009 by embracing diversity and resolving to take concrete and lasting actions to help put an end to discrimination.

Justice Dinakaran – A Dalit being targeted ?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — Nagaraja M R @ 12:24 pm

S.O.S – e – Clarion Of Dalit – Weekly Newspaper On Web

Working For The Rights & Survival Of The Oppressed

Editor: NAGARAJ.M.R… VOL.3 issue. 52… 30 / 12 / 2009

Editorial : JUSTICE DINAKARAN – Dalit being targeted ?
Justice Dinakaran chief justice of Karnataka high court , is persecuted as he happens to be a DALIT ?

In india , till 1947 public life in the society was guided by four varnashrama system or Manu’s caste system. Birth is accidental not out of choice , just for being born in a particular caste the human beings were treated worse than animals. This caste system was designed & enforced by the village farming community (Gowdas , Thakurs , Reddys , different names are used to indicate those belonging to farming community in different states of india ) , Trading community and most importantly Brahmin community. Brahmin provided the ideological reasoning for this inhuman , barbaric act of DALIT OPPRESSION citing various religious texts . The physical enforcement of this oppressive act was done by those belonging to the farming community with their muscle power. Both the farming community & Trading community had complete control over the local economy and forced dalits economically too to slave it out for unjust labor charges at the farms of those same oppressors.

After independence of india , little has changed. The government has banned the practice of untouchability , provided various welfare measures for the upliftment of dalits through legislations. Now , the Brahmin community which was providing ideological base for “UNTOUCHABILITY” has been isolated and are at disincentive for getting seats in government colleges , scholarships , for getting government jobs , etc. Brahmins are paying the price for the past wrongdoings of their forefathers. This has been achieved by the government easily as the Brahmin community lacks numerical strength & muscle power.

What about the farming community & trading community ? both the communities have got numerical strength , muscle power & are the deciding electorate in the formation of governments. Previously those belonging to these two communities were village heads , ruled the villages & controlled local economy. Now the same community people are MLAs , MPs , Cabinet Ministers and are continuing with their practice at the subtle level. These two communities didn’t pay any price for their past wrong doings for practice of untouchability. They are also enjoying various reservation benefits , welfare measures , incentives from the government . Still they have not changed their mindset & are practicing discrimination against dalits at the subtle level – for them Dalits are just a vote bank . who will punish them ?

Even the society , media which reflects the majority view , reflects the discriminatory attitude at the subtle level. For all the terrorist crimes usually muslim community is targeted , does that mean whole of muslim community are terrorists in the view of government & majority community ? whenever a tribal person , a dalit struggles for his survival , existence – he is branded as a naxalite ?

when the persons belonging to majority community are involved plotting , execution of major , more heinous terrorist acts , he is let off freely , even media does not report , however if a muslim community person is caught he is slapped with TADA , POTA Charges , media gives much hype to it. When the terror master minds in government of india seeded , supported , financed Tamil Terrorists in srilanka , Bangla terrorists in East Bengal (now Bangladesh) – who killed lakhs of innocent srilankans & Bangladeshis , nobody not even media questioned it. See how film actor sanjay dutt got a favorable treatment from government , police & judiciary , media as he belonged to a forward caste & from an influential family although he stored the arms , ammunitions meant for Bombay bomb blasts . Nobody not even the media questions the attendance of film actors , politicians at the parties hosted by under world dons , terror master minds in gulf & south asian countries.

Still in india , practice of untouchability is there at the subtle level. The sad part is that few dalits who got education , job , economic benefits just due to the government legislation , who are now standing firm , capable , got respectable stature in the society themselves have become puppets in the hands of forward caste people. These progressed Dalits have taken sides with the forward caste oppressors & are suppressing their own Dalit Brothers. Now , take for instance the case of Justice Dinakaran rhe Dalit – he has got , education , incentives , reservation , job , etc , all due to the government legislations. Instead of working for the upliftment of his Dalit brothers in his greed for more money , more wealth he usurped the very land earmarked by the government for his Poor Dalit brothers. Thereby , JUSTICE DINAKARAN HIMSELF HAS PROVED THAT HE IS ANTI-DALIT. HE MUST BE PUNISHED , NOT JUST LET OFF WITH RESIGNATION FROM SERVICE or GAG ON MOUTH.

Media & Government has given much hype to JUSTICE DINAKARAN’S case as he is a DALIT. What about the more grave crimes done by high ranking judges belonging to upper castes ? what action government has taken ? why does not media give wide coverage for such upper caste judges caught , finally helping in hushing up the case ? Take for instance roost resort sex scandal involving Karnataka high court judges or the UP high court judge belonging to upper caste who got his official chambers cleaned , purified with GANGA JAL (as the official chamber was previously occupied by a dalit judge). WHY NOT MEDIA IS GIVING COVERAGE TO SUCH CASES INVOLVING UPPER CASTE JUDGES ? WHY NOT GOVERNMENT IS TAKING ACTION AGAINST ERRING UPPER CASTE JUDGES , WHO’S CRIMES ARE GRAVER THAN DINAKARAN’S ?

Government & Media should not practice double standards . TRUTH FOREVER – Attempts by vested interests to silence our publication , to silence a human rights activist , to silence the voice of Dalits
The police , judges , public servants , etc question the accussed persons , to ascertain the root cause of crime or dispute, to know the truth behind every actions. The police even apply 3rd degree torture on commoners ( although it is illegal ) to elicit truth , information about crimes. When the same public wants to know the truth behind crimes involving police , judges & public servants , and seeking truth , answers , informations as per RTI ACT from police , judges & public servants , they are not answering lest the truth come out. They are citing one or the other technical reasons to hide information , to hide truth about crimes , to shield the criminals. If any of the following public servants truly stands for law , justice , truth , let them answer for the following questions publicly through media.



Your’s sincerely,

Why Go For Conversion?
By Dr. B.R. Ambedkar
18 September, 2008

In 1935 at Nasik district, Maharashtra, Dr.Babasaheb Ambedkar had declared his firm resolve to change his religion. He had declared that he was born as a Hindu but will not die as Hindu. About a year later, a massive Mahar conference was held on May 30 and 31, 1936, in Mumbai, to access the impact of that declaration on Mahar masses. In his address to the conference, Dr.Ambedkar expressed his views on conversion in an elaborate, well- prepared and written speech in Marathi. Here is an English translation of that speech by Mr.Vasant Moon, OSD to the committee of Govt. of Maharashtra for publication of Writings & speeches of Dr.B.R.Ambedkar

Class Struggle
There are two aspects of conversion; social as well as religious; material as well as spiritual. Whatever may be the aspect, or line of thinking, it is necessary to understand the beginning, the nature of Untouchability and how it is practiced. Without this understanding, you will not be able to realize the real meaning underlying my declaration of conversion. In order to have a clear understanding of untouchability and its practice in real life, I want you to recall the stories of the atrocities perpetrated against you. But very few of you might have realized as to why all this happens! What is at the root cause of their tyranny? To me it is very necessary, that we understand it.
This is not a feud between rival men. The problem of untouchability is a matter of class struggle. It is the struggle between caste Hindus and the Untouchables. That is not a matter of doing injustice against one man. This is a matter of injustice being done by one class against another. This “class struggle” has a relation with the social status. This struggle indicates, how one class should keep its relation with another class. This struggle starts as soon as you start claiming equal treatment with others…

Conversion not for slaves
The reason for their anger is very simple. Your behaving on par with them insults them. The untouchability is not a short or temporary feature; it is a permanent one .To put it straight, it can be said that the struggle between the Hindus and the Untouchables is a permanent phenomena. It is eternal, because the religion which has placed you at the lowest level of the society is itself eternal, according to the belief of the Hindu caste people. No change, according to time and circumstances is possible. You are at the lowest rung of the ladder today. You shall remain lowest forever. This means the struggle between Hindus and Untouchables shall continue forever. How will you survive through this struggle is the main question. And unless you think over it, there is no way out. Those who desire to live in obedience to the dictates of the Hindus, those who wish to remain their slaves, they do not need to think over this problem. But those who wish to live a life of self-respect, and equality, will have to think over this. How should we survive through this struggle? For me, it is not difficult to answer this question. Those who have assembled here will have to agree that in any struggle one who holds strength becomes the victor. One, who has no strength, need not expect success. This has been proved by experience, and I do not need to cite illustration to prove it.

Three types of Strength
The question that follows, which you must now consider, is whether you have enough strength to survive through this struggle? Three types of strength are known to man: (i) Manpower, (ii) Finance and (iii) Mental Strength. Which of these, you think that you possess? So far as manpower is concerned, it is clear, that you are in a minority. In Mumbai Presidency, the untouchables are only one-eighth of the total population. That too unorganized. The castes within themselves do not allow them to organize. They are not even compact. They are scattered through the villages. Under these circumstances, this small population is of no use as a fighting force to the untouchables at their critical moments. Financial strength is also just the same. It is an undisputed fact that you at least have a little bit of manpower, but finances you have none. You have no trade, no business, no service, no land. The piece of bread thrown out by the higher castes, are your means of livelihood. You have no food, no clothes. What financial strength can you have? You have no capacity to get redress from the law courts. Thousands of untouchables tolerate insult, tyranny and oppression at the hands of Hindus without a sigh of complaint, because they have no capacity to bear the expenses of the courts. As regards mental strength, the condition is still worst. The tolerance of insults and tyranny without grudge and complaint has killed the sense of retort and revolt. Confidence, vigour and ambition have been completely vanished from you. All of you have been become helpless, unenergetic and pale. Everywhere, there is an atmosphere of defeatism and pessimism. Even the slight idea, that you can do something does not enter your mind.
Muslim Example
If, whatever I have described above is correct then you will have to agree with the conclusion that follows. The conclusion is, if you depend only upon your own strength, you will never be able to face the tyranny of the Hindus. I have no doubt that you are oppressed because you have no strength. It is not that you alone are in minority. The Muslims are equally small in number. Like Mahar- Mangs, they too have few houses in the village. But no one dares to trouble the Muslims while you are always a victim of tyranny. Why is this so? Though there may be two houses of Muslims in the village, nobody dares to harm them, while the whole village practices tyranny against you though you have ten houses. Why does this happen? This is a very pertinent question and you will have to find out a suitable answer to this. In my opinion, there is only one answer to this question. The Hindus realize that the strength of the whole of the Muslim population in India stands behind those two houses of Muslims living in a village and, therefore, they do not dare to touch them. Those two houses also enjoy free and fearless life because they are aware that if any Hindu commits aggression against them, the whole Muslim community from Punjab to Madras will rush to their protection at any cost. On the other hand, the Hindus are sure that none will come to your rescue, nobody will help you, no financial help will reach you. Tahsildar and police belong to caste Hindus and in case of disputes between Hindus and Untouchables, they are more faithful to their caste than to their duty. The Hindus practice injustice and tyranny against you only because you are helpless.

Outside Support
From the above discussion, two facts are very clear. Firstly, you can not face tyranny without strength. And secondly, you do not possess enough strength to face the tyranny. With these two conclusions, a third one automatically follows. That is, the strength required to face this tyranny needs to be secured from outside. How are you to gain this strength is really an important question? And you will have to think over this with an unbiased mind.
From this, you will realize one thing, that unless you establish close relations with some other society, unless you join some other religion, you cannot get the strength from outside. It clearly means, you must leave your present religion and assimilate yourselves with some other society. Without that, you cannot gain the strength of that society. So long as you do not have strength, you and your future generations will have to lead your lives in the same pitiable condition.

Spiritual Aspect of Conversion
Uptil now, we have discussed why conversion is necessary for material gains. Now, I propose to put forth my thoughts as to why conversion is as much necessary for spiritual wellbeing. What is Religion? Why is it necessary? … ‘That which govern people is religion’. That is the true definition of Religion. There is no place for an individual in Hindu society. The Hindu religion is constituted on a class-concept. Hindu religion does not teach how an individual should behave with another individual. A religion, which does not recognize the individual, is not personally acceptable to me.
Three factors are required for the uplift of an individual. They are: Sympathy, Equality and Liberty. Can you say by experience that any of these factors exist for you in Hinduism?
No Equality in Hinduism
Such a living example of inequality is not to be found anywhere in the world. Not at anytime in the history of mankind can we find such inequality, which is more intense than untouchability… I think, you have been thrust into this condition because you have continued to be Hindus. Those of you who have become Muslims, are treated by the Hindus neither as Untouchables nor as unequals. The same can be said of those who have become Christians…
That God is all pervading is a principle of science and not of religion, because religion has a direct relation with the behaviour of man. Hindus can be ranked among those cruel people whose utterances and acts are two poles apart. They have this Ram on their tongues and a knife under their armpits. They speak like saints but act like butchers…
Thus we are not low in the eyes of the Hindus alone, but we are the lowest in the whole of India, because of the treatment given to us by the Hindus.

If you have to get rid of this same shameful condition, if you have to cleanse this filth and make use of this precious life; there is only one way and that is to throw off the shackles of Hindu religion and the Hindu society in which you are bound.

The taste of a thing can be changed. But the poison cannot be made amrit. To talk of annihilating castes is like talking of changing the poison into amrit. In short, so long as we remain in a religion, which teaches a man to treat another man like a leper, the sense of discrimination on account of caste, which is deeply rooted in our minds, can not go. For annihilating caste and untouchables, change of religion is the only antidote.
Untouchables are not Hindus
What is there in conversion, which can be called novel? Really speaking what sort of social relations have you with the caste Hindus at present? You are as separate from the Hindus as Muslims and Christians are. So is their relation with you. Your society and that of the Hindus are two distinct groups. By conversion, nobody can say or feel that one society has been split up. You will remain as separate from the Hindus as you are today. Nothing new will happen on account of this conversion. If this is true, then why should people be afraid of conversion? At least, I do not find any reason for such a fear…
Revolution – Not Reform
Changing a religion is like changing a name. Change of religion followed by the change of name will be more beneficial to you. To call oneself a Muslim, a Christian, a Buddhist or a Sikh is not merely a change of religion but also a change of name.. Since the beginning of this movement of conversion, various people have raised various objections to it. Let us now examine the truth, if any, in such objections…
A congenital idiot alone will say that one has to adhere to one’s religion because it is that of our ancestors. No sane man will accept such a proposition. Those who advocate such an argument, seem not to have read the history at all. The ancient Aryan religion was called Vedic religion. It has three distinct characteristic (features). Beef-eating, drinking and merry-making was part of the religion of the day. Thousands of people followed it in India and even now some people dream of going back to it. If the ancient religion alone is to be adhered to why did the people of India leave Hinduism and accept Buddhism? Why did they divorce themselves from the Vedic religion?… Thus this Hindu religion is not the religion of our ancestors, but it was a slavery forced upon them…
To reform the Hindu society is neither our aim nor our field of action. Our aim is to gain freedom. We have nothing to do with anything else.
If we can gain freedom by conversion, why should we shoulder the responsibility of reforming the Hindu religion? And why should we sacrifice our strength and property for that? None should misunderstand the object of our movement as being Hindu social reform. The object of our movement is to achieve social freedom for the untouchables. It is equally true that this freedom cannot be secured without conversion.
Caste can’t be destroyed
I do accept that the untouchables need equality as well. And to secure equality is also one of our objectives. But nobody can say that this equality can be achieved only by remaining as Hindu and not otherwise. There are two ways of achieving equality. One, by remaining in the Hindu fold and another by leaving it by conversion. If equality is to be achieved by remaining in the Hindu fold, mere removal of the sense of being a touchable or an untouchable will not serve the purpose. Equality can be achieved only when inter-caste dinners and marriages take place. This means that the Chaturvarnya must be abolished and the Brahminic religion must be uprooted. Is it possible? And if not, will it be wise to expect equality of treatment by remaining in the Hindu religion? And can you be successful in your efforts to bring equality? Of course not. The path of conversion is far simpler than this. The Hindu society does not give equality of treatment, but the same is easily achieved by conversion. If this is true, then why should you not adopt this simple path of conversion?
Conversion is a simplest path
According to me, this conversion of religion will bring happiness to both the Untouchables as well as the Hindus. So long as you remain Hindus, you will have to struggle for social intercourse, for food and water, and for inter-caste marriages. And so long as this quarrel continues, relations between you and the Hindus will be of perpetual enemies. By conversion, the roots of all the quarrels will vanish… thus by conversion, if equality of treatment can be achieved and the affinity between the Hindus and the Untouchables can be brought about then why should the Untouchables not adopt the simple and happy path of securing equality? Looking at this problem through this angle, it will be seen that this path of conversion is the only right path of freedom, which ultimately leads to equality. It is neither cowardice nor escapism.

Sanctified Racism
Although the castes exist in Muslims and the Christians alike, it will be meanness to liken it to that of the Hindus. There is a great distinction between the caste-system of the Hindus and that of the Muslims and Christians. Firstly, it must be noted that though the castes exist amongst the Christians and the Muslims, it is not the chief characteristic of their body social.
There is one more difference between the caste system of the Hindus and that of the Muslims and Christians. The caste system in the Hindus has the foundation of religion. The castes in other religions have no sanction in their religion …Hindus cannot destroy their castes without destroying their religion. Muslims and Christians need not destroy their religions for eradication of their castes. Rather their religion will support such movements to a great extent.

Conversion alone liberates us
I am simply surprised by the question, which some Hindus ask us as to what can be achieved by conversion alone? Most of the present day Sikhs, Muslims and Christians were formerly Hindus, majority of them being from the Shudras and Untouchables. Do these critics mean to say that those, who left the Hindu fold and embraced Sikhism or Christianity, have made no progress at all? And if this is not true, and if it is admitted that the conversion has brought a distinct improvement in their condition, then to say that the untouchables will not be benefited by conversion, carries no meaning…
After giving deep thought to the problem, everybody will have to admit that conversion is necessary to the Untouchables as self-government is to India. The ultimate object of both is the same. There is not the slightest difference in their ultimate goal. This ultimate aim is to attain freedom. And if the freedom is necessary for the life of mankind, conversion of Untouchables which brings them complete freedom cannot be called worthless by any stretch of imagination…

Economic Progress or Social Changes?
I think it necessary here to discuss the question as to what should be initiated first, whether economic progress or conversion? I do not agree with the view that economic progress should precede…
Untouchability is a permanent handicap on your path of progress. And unless you remove it, your path cannot be safe. Without conversion, this hurdle cannot be removed…
So, if you sincerely desire that your qualifications should be valued, your education should be of some use to you, you must throw away the shackles of untouchability, which means that you must change your religion…
However, for those who need this Mahar Watan, I can assure them that their Mahar Watan will not be jeopardized by their conversion. In this regard, the Act of 1850 can be referred. Under the provisions of this Act, no rights of person or his successors with respect to his property are affected by virtue of his conversion…
Poona Pact
A second doubt is about political rights. Some people express fear as to what will happen to our political safeguards if we convert…
But I feel, it is not proper to depend solely on political rights. These political safeguards are not granted on the condition that they shall be ever lasting. They are bound to cease sometime. According to the communal Award of the British Government, our political safeguards were limited for 20 years. Although no such limitation has been fixed by the Poona Pact, nobody can say that they are everlasting. Those, who depend upon the political safeguards, must think as to what will happen after these safeguards are withdrawn on the day on which our rights cease to exist. We will have to depend on our social strength. I have already told you that this social strength is wanting in us. So also I have proved in the beginning that this strength cannot be achieved without conversion…
Political Rights
Under these circumstances, one must think of what is permanently beneficial.

In my opinion, conversion is the only way to eternal bliss. Nobody should hesitate even if the political rights are required to be sacrificed for this purpose. Conversion brings no harm to the political safeguards. I do not understand why the political safeguards should at all be jeopardized by conversion. Wherever you may go, your political rights and safeguards will accompany you. I have no doubt about it.
If you become Muslims, you will get the political rights as Muslims. If you become Christians, you will get the political rights as Christians, if you become Sikhs, you will have your political rights as Sikhs. In short, our political rights will accompany us.
So nobody should be afraid of it. On the other hand, if we remain Hindus and do not convert, will our rights be safe? You must think carefully on this. Suppose the Hindus pass a law whereby the untouchability is prohibited and its practice is made punishable, then they may ask you, ‘We have abolished untouchability by law and you are no longer untouchables…
Looking through this perspective, conversion becomes a path for strengthening the political safeguards rather than becoming a hindrance. If you remain Hindus, you are sure to lose your political safeguards. If you want to save them, leave this religion. The political safeguards will be permanent only by conversion.

The Hindu religion does not appeal to my conscience. It does not appeal to my self-respect. However, your conversion will be for material as well as for spiritual gains. Some persons mock and laugh at the idea of conversion for material gains. I do not feel hesitant in calling such persons as stupid.
Conversion brings Happiness
I tell you all very specifically, religion is for man and not man for religion. To get human treatment, convert yourselves.
CONVERT -For getting organized.
CONVERT -For becoming strong.
CONVERT -For securing equality.
CONVERT -For getting liberty.
CONVERT -For that your domestic life may be happy.
I consider him as leader who without fear or favour tells the people what is good and what is bad for them. It is my duty to tell you, what is good for you, even if you don’t like it, I must do my duty. And now I have done it.

It is now for you to decide and discharge your responsibility.

The Most Backward , Neglected among the Backward Caste
People – SCAVENGERS – an appeal to honorable supreme court of india

In India, since independence certain affirmative actions by the
government like job reservations , reservations in educational
institutions , loan facilities , etc are extended to the backward class
, oppressed people. However , the persons who have economically,
socially become stronger on the basis of these government affirmative
actions are not letting their own brethren – scavenging community to
utilize the same. The politicians are just making noises about sub
caste reservation for scheduled castes & tribes , but doing nothing. As
a result , today we find some sub-castes & tribes of SC / ST better off
than their previous generation, some other sub-castes & tribes of SC /
ST are reeling under utter poverty , social ostracism , etc.

A human being can be in a civilized form , healthy – if we have
scavengers to clean our toilets , drainages , if we have barbers to cut
our hairs. The very same people who keep us healthy & civilized are not
treated in a civilized manner by the society , why ? most of the town
municipalities , city corporations are employing scavengers on daily
wages without any statuotary benefits & are paid less than the
statuotary minimum wages. every towns & cities in India are bursting
with population growth , however the number of scavengers has not been
increased in proportion to the growth of population , In most of the
cases the existing scavengers are overburdened with the work load. ,
Most of them are suffering from occupational health hazards , are dying
at young ages leaving their families in the lurch.

Hereby, we appeal to honourable supreme court of India to treat
this as a PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION & to order government of India ,
all state governments , statuotary bodies like city corporations , town
municiapalities , etc,

1. to regularize the jobs of all scavengers , to provide all
statuotary benefits like ESI,PF, etc.

2. to take all necessary steps to eradicate manual scavenging –
carrying human excreta on heads.

3. to take all necessary steps to protect their health &
occupational safety.

Bottomline : all the citizens , the society must learn to respect
their brethren who keeps them healthy , tidy & civilized.


In India , even today after 62 years of independence & democratic
governance , the plight of DALITS , TRIBALS , DOWNTRODDEN & POOR has not
improved . in fact it has worsened . the government & public servants
just pay lip service to dalits & have totally failed to uplift them in
59 years of independence . the public servants want dalits to be as such
to ride over them & to use them as pawns in power politics , as a vote
bank. let them answer how many dalits have become supreme court judges
in india . even today in india , the practice of carrying human excreta
on head still persists .

what is the use if india becomes an IT POWER or knowledge base . what
is the use if india sends it’s own satellites on it’s own rockets ot
space . did those scientific achievements has devolved , percolated to
dalits & poor in the society , has it benefitted them ? NO . JUST SEE


In india , rich people belonging to forward castes form educational
trusts , proclaiming that they want to serve the society by providing
education to all irrespective of caste or creed. By this declaration
they get Civic Amenity sites from government authorities at concessional
rates. Further they get tax , duty exemptions on materials , machines
they import for the educational institution. However , while admitting
students they are purely commercial minded , the highest bidder gets the


Some institutions like industrial training institutes ( I.T.I) ,
polytechnics , engineering colleges & medical colleges run by trusts
floated by forward castes lack basic infrastructure , to teach students
properly , they only appoint staff belonging to their castes. Dalits
,minorities , weaker section people are not at all selected. They don’t
publicly advertise for vacancies. They fill all posts with their own
caste people & finally even get government grant in aid. How ? These
institutions are getting affiliations , yearly approvals from the
government , how ? actually they should have been shut. These trusts
want government backing for tax exemptions , lands at concessional rates
,monetary benefits , etc , however the same trusts are not willing to
implement the social welfare objectives of the government , by providing
seats to weaker sections , by providing appointments to dalits few posts
in all category of positions ( not just group D – dalits are also
brilliant & capable of performing all jobs, they have proved it ).

Hereby , we urge honourable prime minister of india , government of
india & honourable chief minister of karnataka , government of karnataka
to :

1. before giving lands at concessional rate , tax exemptions , to any
educational trusts the government must ensure that the trust must adhere
to the social welfare norms of the government from day one.

2. Before giving affiliations to educational institutions the govt must
ensure , are the institutions are providing sufficient infrastructure to
students ?

3. Before giving grant in aid to any institution , the government must
ensure have the management provided jobs to dalits , minorities , etc as
per norms from the day one . if not grant in aid should be rejected.
Here there is no meaning in giving reservation of jobs in future
appointments in those institutions , as all the posts are presently
filled with forward castes , there is no expansion projects. So , dalits
have to wait for another 30-40 years to get the vacancies in those
institutions after the retirement of forward caste employees , which is
not at all practical or realistic .

4. In karnataka state , numerous Industrial Training Institutes ( ITI)
have mushroomed , some don’t even have basic infrastructure. Still they
are running the show , how ? these ITIs run by forward caste people have
appointed only their caste people to all posts , not even a single dalit
is there. Still they have got government grant in aid , how ? we urge
honourable chief minister of karnataka , to look into this & in future
to provide grant in aid in aid to only those I.T.Is which have proper
infrastructure & dalits , weaker section employees on their pay-rolls.

5. To order all educational institutions to make public announcement of
vacancies in their institutions even though not covered under grant in
aid , as they have already taken sufficient monetary benefits from the

6. To order all educational institutions , to admit students as per
government rates of fees. Some institutions are fleecing higher fees
from the students , but are giving receipts for lesser amount only.

7. If any educational institutions don’t agree with the government norms
, those institutions must be asked to be registered as commercial bodies
, no tax exemptions , lands at concessional rates , allotment of CA
sites should be given to them by the government. By these measures alone
poor & weaker section people will get justice . you are aware of merited
but poor students committing suicides year after year , CET fiasco – due
to their financial inability to join medical or engineering colleges.
Numerous similar cases are there with regard to admission to ITIs .
polytechnics. The greed & casteism of these educational institutions is
reigning high. In the positive hope that you will be kind enough to put
an end to this menace.


Salutes to our Freedom Fighters who enabled us to live in independence ,
salutes to our brave Jawans who are safe guarding our independence ,
salutes to our Kargil martyrs , salutes to our NSG Commondos , who are
protecting us from deadly Terrorists. Our head bows to you all – the
Brave sons of India.

After 63 years of india’s independence the lives of commoners is far
worse than under britishers. The benefits of independence has reached
only few , thus creating islands of few ultra rich people surrounded by
vast sea of utterly poor. The rich people in nexus with those in power ,
are getting favourable laws enacted to suit their ends. Those in power
are shamelessly enjoying 5-star luxuries all at tax payer’s expense ,
while more then 50 million are starving to death.

The criminalization of politics , executive & judiciary is almost
complete. The corruption has spread it’s tentacles far & wide , there is
corruption from womb to tomb ,from maternity hospital to grave yard. The
injustices meated out , the atrocities perpetrated by by public servants
are worse than britishers.

Ideally in a democracy, the legal recourse of grievance redressal /
justice , when a commoner suffers injustice he can appeal to respective
government official or police for justice , still if doesn’t get justice
he can appeal to court of law , further the aggrieved can get the
appropriate law enacted through his M.P / M.L.A. The sad part in India
is no public servant is neither aware of the value of our hard won
independence or the working of democracy.

When all the legal recourses to justice fail to respond , to provide
justice to the aggrieved , when corrupt judges-police-politician-public
servants act as a criminal nexus & block justice delivery, the commoner
has only 2 options , either to suffer in silence or to take law into his
own hands & get justice on his own.

Take for instance Bombay riots case several VVIPs – cabinet
ministers , police were found to be guilty of torture , murders of
innocents by justice sri Krishna enquiry commission. The government is
sitting over enquiry commission report. The court is not taking
suo-motto action in public interests a result , the guilty ministers &
police who are fit cases for death sentences are roaming free &
commiting more crimes , anti-national activities.

In some cases , involving the rich &mighty ,higher police officials ,
the cover-up begins right from start ie FIR Registration. Police conduct
name sake enquiry , investigation, suppress evidences , witnesses ,
destroy some of them , the prosecution takes a favourable stand putting
up weak arguments. Naturally, the guilty official , minister is
acquitted by court for lack of evidences. So, the guilty who should have
been rightfully put behind bars , hanged goes scot-free , to commit more
crimes , more anti-national activities.

In such cases , if the suffering public give the legal punishment to the
guilty , which should have been given by the court but failed. Are not
such acts of public, to uphold law & dignity , national security right &
patriotic ? if any body terms it as crime , that means guilty VVIPs ,
police , public servants should be left unpunished allowing them to
commit more crimes , anti-national activities. Is that right from
national security angle ? is it equality before law & equitable justice

Do remember that our freedom fighters ,martyrs ,sri.kudiram bose
,subhash Chandra bose , bhagath singh , veer savarkar others who took
violent path of independence struggle & killed inhuman british officers,
police & judges have contributed valuably ,immensely to our freedom
struggle. One of the main causes of origin of naxalism ,separatist
movements is the rampant corruption & unaccountability of public
servants in India.

In this back drop , in India anarchy is not far away. The days of
suffering public ,killing their tormentors corrupt police , corrupt
judges , corrupt tax officials ,etc is not far away. No police security
, no SPG cover can protect those corrupt , as police & SPG personnel
work for pay , perks and will be on the wrong side of law –
protecting criminals. The suffering public fighting for their survival ,
on the right side of natural justice , protecting the nation.

If the authorities term this act as illegal , crime then are the acts of
corrupt public servants legal ? is the cover-up of such corrupt acts by
police , vigilance officials & some judges by mis quoting
/misinterpreting , misusing law is right , legal ? the GOI has created ,
funded , supported , given training , arms & ammunition to various
terrorist outfits like LTTE , MUKTHI BAHINI ,MQM in foreign countries ,
resulting in destruction , mass murders of innocents there . In india
itself in assam , Kashmir , the GOI has created counter terrorist
outfits to reduce the reach of terrorist groups. The bihar , jharkhand ,
chattisgarh state governments have created armed gangs SALWA JUDUM to
counter naxal outfits , are all these acts of government right , legal ?
the days of dogs death for corrupt is quite nearby. it is high time , to
the corrupt to reform , repent themselves.

In our own experience, e-voice didn’t get justice from authorities in
many cases of injustices brought before it , most shameful fact even
supreme court of India failed to register PILs , even shameful supreme
court of India even failed to give information as per RTI Act , utterly
shameful supreme court of India failed to protect the fundamental rights
of editor of e-voice & obstructed him from performing his fundamental
duties. Still, e-voice believes in peace , democratic practices. E-voice
firmly believes that violence should not be practiced by anybody –
neither state nor public.

Hereby, e-voice urges the corrupt public servants to mend their ways ,
to uphold law & dignity of democratic institutions. Atrocities ,
violence , corruption breeds more violence , invites dog’s death. Peace
,truth , honesty is the harbinger of prosperous democratic nation.
Greetings to all my Indian brothers & sisters on the occasion of 63rd
independence day celebrations, let us build a true democratic India ,
free of corrupt public servants.

Recently we have seen media reports about arrest of high ranking police officers by Karnataka lokayukta , many police are arrested by karnataka lokayukta . Many government officials are apprehended by Karnataka lokayukta in the past , on an average from each arrested corrupt government officials millions of rupees worth illegal wealth was confiscated from each criminal. This wealth is earned by selling their official duties , for preparing fake government reports , records in somebody’s favor. During the proceedings of the court , paradoxically the judge depends on those very same concocted government reports , records (prepared by corrupt official) as the gospel truth & gives his judgement. The corrupt police officials by taking bribe suppress evidences , leave criminals from FIRs , deviate from the line of investigation , purposefully delay investigations allowing for destruction of evidences / escape of criminals , close cases with B reports , delay arrests of criminals as not traceable , in the same way fix innocents , coughs up fake confessions from innocents , etc all to protect the real rich & mighty criminal in the background. During the proceedings of the court , the judge heavily relys on the investigation reports , records of these corrupt police officials & gives his judgment.
Recently a fortnight back , in an article written by Karnataka government law & justice minister Shri. Suresh Kumar has mentioned about an incident where in an innocent was illegally arrested by police , the public prosecutor demanding a FAT FEE from the innocent detainee to get his release. Nowadays , many of the government paid Public Prosecutors in understanding with the defense advocate strike a deal , present the government’s case in half hearted manner allowing the rich & mighty criminal to escape. During the proceedings of the court the judge relies on the stand of prosecution , the stand of corrupt public prosecutor as government is the party which has filed that very case.
In the court of law , judges follow the law enacted by parliament or state legislatures. However some of the criminals who have entered into the halls of parliament & legislatures are successful in getting certain illegal acts legalized . the courts of law blindly follow those illegal , unethical , immoral LAWS / ACTS / GOVERNMENT ORDERS as gospel truths , as guiding lines as they happen to be technically legal.

In some cases , the judges themselves happen to be corrupt , they sell all judicial orders for a price. Just remember the case of a TADA court judge issuing bail orders for a price , or a judge issuing arrest warrants against then CHIEF JUSTICE OF INDIA & PRESIDENT OF INDIA .

Due to all these cases , the rich & mighty criminals are manipulating the entire legal system to their own favor and innocent people , common folk are getting a raw deal in the courts of law. Where is Mahatma Gandhi’s Ram Rajya even after 62 years of India’s Independence.

By all these action can we expect justice from the corrupt mentioned in the following articles. SHAME TO SHAMELESS CORRUPT JUDGES , CORRUPT POLICE , CORRUPT PUBLIC SERVANTS of india . These corrupt must learn lessons of duty from their honest colleagues, honest few judges , police , public servants still left in service. These few honest judges , honest police & honest public servants must teach their corrupt colleagues how to behave. Corrupt must first learn to be human beings , to behave as human beings & to interact with the public as human beings.


– By American Citizens

Our country was known as ” Heaven On Earth” , “Land of Equality & Equal Oppurtunity” & the “Statue of Liberty” rightly symbolized the spirit of our country. Now USA is known as a “Terror State”.

In the last 3 – 4 decades , the persons who occupied the office of President USA ,in their individual capacity took wrong , inhuman decisions , meddled in the internal affairs of other sovereign nations , spent our resources to create terrorist outfits like al-queda , Taliban in those countries.

In turn these terrorist outfits terrorized , murdered millions of innocents & this Frankenstein monster came home to roost on September 9 / 11 . After September 9 / 11 , each terror suspect is severely tortured in hell like Abu Garibh prison , elsewhere by our authorities. For argument sake let us accept
that these terrorists who murder innocents don’t deserve kid glove treatment & rightly deserve 3rd degree torture. When a single terrorist deserve such inhuman 3rd degree torture , what quantum of punishment , torture – previous presidents of USA deserve – who created , aided & abetted thousands of such terrorists , terrorist outfits ?

Herby, we appeal to the honourable Supreme Court of USA to order the federal government to to make public :

1. how much US resources were spent from US TREASURY , to finance terrorist outfits , military juntas in other sovereign nations ?

2. is not Al-queda , Taliban creations of USA ?

3. did September 9 / 11 WTC attack truly happened by hijacked airplane or was it planned by US authorities ? see

4 . is racial profiling , profiling a particular community & suspecting all the muslims as terror suspects , right?

5. if it is right , the cretors of such terrorist outfits – past presidents of USA – who were Christians makes it logical to assume whole of our Christian community as terror suspect ?

6. is not use of 3rd degree torture on all type of suspects in US prisons & in the prisons of US allied countries at the behest of US authorities , right ? is it not violation of human rights & US laws ?

7. did US find any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq , which was the main reason for US attacking Iraq ?

8. why not US authorities use scientific interrogation techniques like polygraph , lie detector tests instead of inhuman 3rd degree torture on terror suspects & suspects in other criminal cases ?

9 . what legal right our President of USA have , to illegally spend billions of our dollars on inhuman , llegal acts of terrorism , military coup , creation , aiding & abetting of terrorists , etc , in other sovereign nations ? while we are suffering from loss of jobs ,loss of home due to natural calamities , etc ?

Crux , Foundation of all religions is humanity , kindness & universal brotherhood. It is the preachers who misrepresent it. Terrorism created , aided , abetted by anybody is inhuman & wrong . Terrorism is creation of power hungry , selfish people & they must be legally punished .

Hereby , we appeal to the honorable supreme court of USA to legally prosecute Previous PRESIDENTS OF USA in the last 4 decades , for crimes of terror , as per the present US anti-terror laws.

Recently , in the issue of weekly publication “The Week” , cabinet minister of government of srilanka (previously a deadly terrorist & right hand man of LTTE chief Prabhakaran ) Mr. Karuna , Himself has stated in an interview that LTTE received arms training in Tamilnadu State of India , to wage war against Government of Srilanka. The Justice Jain Commission Of Enquiry , which probed late PM Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination case , also stated that Tamil Terrorist outfits in Srilanka Received monetary , financial , arms training support from government of India. GOI has even setup a radio station for tamil terrorists of srilanka , within Indian territory. GOI spent billions of dollars of Indian taxpayer’s money for aiding & abetting terrorism , while billions of Indians were half starving & going without a single meal , without proper health care.

Recently , in a media interview the president of Government of Pakistan Mr. Jardari himself has confessed that in the previous years the government of Pakistan has aided & abetted Terrorism for tactical gains of Pakistan , spending billions of dollars of Pakistani taxpayer’s money. While ordinary Pakistanis were suffering from starvation , lack of health care , etc.

All the above proves that Previous Presidents of Government of USA , previous Presidents of Government of Pakistan & Previous Prime Ministers of Government of India were the real master minds of TERRORISM , founded , aided , abetted TERRORISM FOR THEIR OWN SELFISH GAINS. In turn Murdering lakhs of innocent human beings. These guilty previous presidents & prime ministers are deadly than OSAMA BIN LADEN.

Hereby , we appeal to the Honorable Chief Justices of supreme courts of USA , INDIA , PAKISTAN , BANGLADESH , SRILANKA & INTERNATIONAL WAR CRIMES TRIBUNAL , to legally prosecute the previous Prime Ministers of INDIA , the previous presidents of USA & PAKISTAN , on charges of master minding TERRORISM & murdering innocent people in their respective countries .

“The strange case of Justice P.D. Dinakaran” has taken a strange turn. A group of advocates and activists in Tamil Nadu are alleging that the chief justice of the Karnataka High Court is the victim of a motivated vilification campaign. That his character is being assassinated because he is a Dalit.
“The real agenda is to prevent a member of a backward community from entering the ‘sanctum sanctorum’, now a monopoly of the upper castes,” K. Veeramani, general secretary of Dravida Kazhagam, the parent organisation of the DMK, has been quoted as saying.
The figleaf was provided by the veteran jurist Shanti Bhushan, who was among the legal eagles who brought the memorandum of charges prepared by the Madras-based Forum for Judicial Accountability to the notice of the chief justice of India, K.G. Balakrishnan, also a Dalit.
In an interview to The Pioneer, Delhi, Bhushan is reported to have said:
“It is inexplicable on the part of the CJI as to why he is not consulting the judges of the Supreme Court, like Justices M. Katju and A.K. Ganguly, under whom Dinakaran has served. So many lawyers are making allegations against him. Why is he (CJI) so keen to get him (Dinakaran) appointed? Perhaps the reason may be that he is a Dalit. We cannot say.”
An imputation of favouritism was also made by the SC lawyer Rajeev Dhavan in an article in Mail Today, after Justice Dinakaran excused himself from a tour to Australia once the scandal broke:
“Justice Dinakaran has declared that he will not accompany the ‘judges exchange’ delegation to Australia. There is a lot to doubt whethere he deserved to be a delegate over others in the first place. Someone seems to have a soft spot for him.”
Questions: Is Justice Dinakaran being because he is a Dalit? Or is this a lame attempt to give the controversy a caste colour to shield the judge? Should a Dalit be excused if he is accused of land grabbing, corruption, abuse of office and lack of probity merely because he is a Dalit? Is a Dalit entitled to take away lands of other Dalits, as is being alleged, because he is a Dalit?

‘Justice Dinakaran no Dalit’
V Gangadharan
First Published : 27 Sep 2009 02:16:00 AM IST

CHENNAI: In a fresh twist to the controversy surrounding Justice Paul Diwakar Dinakaran, a collective of civil rights groups here has questioned his Dalit background, saying he ceased to be a member of the Scheduled Castes ever since he converted to Christianity.
Addressing mediapersons here, representatives of the organisations said the entire issue of elevation of Dinakaran is premised upon serious charges of corruption and those who try to rake up his caste background were unaware of what they are doing.
Going by the Constitution, the People’s Watch said, the judge was not an SC member, instead a Christian falling under the Backward Classes. The National Commission for the Scheduled Castes was “needlessly trying to jump into an issue, which basically stems from charges of corruption alone”, the NGO’s Executive Director Henri Tiphagne noted.
O Fernandes of the Human Rights Advocacy and Research Foundation and others representing Dalit forums said the issue was only about encroachment of public property, misuse of office, and “questionable” judicial orders in certain cases, besides violation of some provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act. “Most charges stand substantiated after our field visits.”
Justice Dinakaran has 527 acres of land in Kaverirajapuram village near Tiruttani. Of this, 230.19 acres come under government ‘poromboke’ and ‘adineenam’ category.
The locals used the lands for purposes like cattle grazing. Their misappropriation has affected the local poor, mainly Dalits and other backward people. “Let all charges be probed. If he is exonerated, then its fine,” Tiphagne said.
Asked how Dinakaran could continue as the Chief Justice of the Karnataka HC if the charges were true, he said, “Ideally he must not. But, we cannot ask everything at the same moment.” A detailed account of alleged misappropriation of wealth would be sent to the CJI and the collegium.
