Rahul Gandhi – RSS and SIMI both are terror group

9 Oct

Am not politically too much aware to really judge if equating RSS with SIMI is justifiable. But, there is no doubt RSS, VHP, Bajrang dal, Shiv sena are all extremists groups and have more than once contributed to unnecessary and despicable communal and social tension in the country.

If only these political parties had the guts to demand apology from their own allies to the country whenever they did  something wrong. It’s easy to dance on the opposition’s head!!

A girl is burnt again

HISAR: An argument between a Dalit and a Jat over the former’s dog led to near-unbridled violence in a village in Hisar district which was tense throughout Thursday after an 18-year-old physically challengedDalit girl and her father were burnt alive on Wednesday.

The Dalits refused to cremate the bodies, demanding a CBI probe and compensation, apart from sacking of the Jat tehsildar of Mirchpur village where the violence began. Angry demonstrators also protested in front of the Civil Hospital where post-mortem was conducted on the girl, Suman, and her father, Tara Chand.

A police probe revealed that Rajender, a Jat, and Yogesh from Valmiki (Dalit) community, got into an argument early this week, after the latter objected to Rajender hurling stones at his dog. When the matter reached the panchayat, two representatives of the Valmiki community – Veer Bhan and Karnpal – were summoned but ended up being beaten by the Jats.

Jats are alleged to have torched 25 Dalits houses in the village. ”My father and sister were at home when armed men came raiding around noon and set our house on fire,” a shocked Tara Chand’s son Amar said. An eyewitness to the attack, he hid and saw the gangs doing the rounds.

The police, who have been charged with not taking cognizance of Dalit complaints of threats from Jats over the last three days, registered a case on Thursday and sent additional forces to Mirchpur. ”We have taken 25 suspects into custody and are interrogating them,” said Anant Kumar Dhull, IG, Hisar range. Among others camping in the village along with the IG are SP Subhash Yadav and DC O P Sheoran. Haryana DGP Ranjiv Dalal said the trial would be conducted in a fast-track court.

Parmod Bagri, president of Hisar Valmiki Samaj, said, ”This (arson) was another Gohana (a village that saw Jat-Dalit feud in 2005) and Jhajjar in which five Dalits were lynched in 2002.”

Girl Burned in Northern India in Possible Inter-Caste Violence

8 Jul

LUCKNOW, India — Police in northern India arrested a man who allegedly threw a girl into a pile of glowing embers after he caught her trespassing, an attack authorities said Wednesday may have been motivated by caste.

The 6-year-old girl is recuperating at a state-run hospital in Mathura, the north Indian city where the alleged attack occurred, said Dr. Ramesh Kumar.

She is considered a dalit _ a member of the lowest caste in India, where a system of rigid social hierarchy still lingers. The alleged attacker, Madan Singh, 22, comes from a higher caste.

Singh discovered the girl relieving herself Tuesday in a field he owned and demanded she immediately stop what she was doing and leave his property.

“When she did not respond, he simply lifted her and threw her in a heap of embers,” local police official Govind Agarwal told The Associated Press. “The cry of the girl drew the attention of the villagers. They came rushing and pulled the girl out of fire.”

Singh was arrested Wednesday and charged with attempted murder, said police official R.K. Chaturvedi. Police are investigating whether Singh attacked her because of her caste, he said.

A complex hereditary system divides Hindus into castes, and those on the lower rungs of the social ladder still face intense discrimination _ even though the system was made illegal nearly six decades ago.

In much of rural India, people of lower castes are kept from upper-caste drinking wells, barred from temples and kept out of village schools. Violations are often met with violence.

The attack took place in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, which is governed by India’s most powerful low-caste politician, Mayawati, a dalit woman who uses only one name.

Mayawati is the leader of a movement to empower dalits — the lowest class in India who were once known as “untouchables” — but crimes against them remain common across her state.
