MY various TAKES on the HYPED Triple Talaq Issue that is being used by the SANGHIS to beat the Muslim community with and to shamelessly POLARISE the SOCIETY along religious lines for  Electoral Gains.


DATE: May 13, 2017


               
I)               Apropos the Hype, Hyperbole and Hoopla that the whole nation (Including the Supreme Court!) has been pushed into by a very clever, Goebbelian  use of media by the  Extended Sangh Parivar over an issue that concerns totally and is obviously intrinsic to Muslim Sharia – Triple Talaq, that concerns only an infinitesimal  fraction of Muslim women-Date May, 12,2017


            
There is CERTAINLY more to it than what MEETS the eye, behind the Lip-service being offered and crocodile tears that the Sangh Parivar Conglomerate is shedding over the Muslim Women’s rights!


It is all the more hypocritical of men like Venkaiah Naidu, Arun Jaitely and even the PM who are mouthing platitudes and giving sermons ad-nauseum  to the Muslim community over this contentious Muslim Personal Law issue, at a time when they are failing to ensure even the Fundamental Right to LIFE  of Muslim MEN, especially those from the lower economic strata like Cattle Traders and Dairy farmers many of who are being harassed and victimized by Goons and Lumpen elements masquerading as “Gau-Rakshaks”  in the most savage manner, a lawless vigilantism that has already caused six gory  deaths so far in the last two years.

So, this all-round Hype, Hyperbole and Hoopla that has been orchestrated through the media by the extended Sangh Parivar is clearly for Political Reasons, and only as a ploy to raise one more communally sensitive, contentious & polarising  issue obviously for electoral benefits .

Why is this government, that has, defacto  (and - dejure; shortly, if R S S Chief becomes the President of India?), a back-seat Driving HEAD, from  the Hindutva Organisation - R S S , does not focus on the ills of Dowry Deaths, Child Marriages, Female Infanticide, Honour Killing, Female Malnutrition, whose incidence is highest among the Hindus and more importantly, on elimination of  the millennia old Scourge of an otherwise tolerant faith Hinduism-the pernicious practice of un-touchability against Dalits, that is still practiced with impunity despite strict laws against it, by the upper caste Hindus and more so in Rural India ( Segregated Colonies, Separate Wells, Separate Tumblers  at Tea shops for Dalits, and the most chillingly abhorrent practice of SEATING DALIT CHILDREN separately for partaking of the Mid-Day meal even in SCHOOLS, etc)?

AND with a method in their madness, every now &and then these hypocrites raise some controversial issue or the other so as to either divide and polarize the society along religious or caste lines for electoral gains or to DIVERT the ATTENTION of the MASSES away from the UTTER FAILURES of this government in fulfilling most of its election campaign promises and other failures on all other governance fronts.

It is High time that Free and Independent Press ( more so National Dailies like The Hindu with reputation of being a 130 years old warrior for dissemination of TRUTH) stops becoming   mouth-pieces for the Sangh and should come out openly against these Oft-repeated Goebbelian trick of propaganda ( just like it was used in Hitler's Germany) comprising of spreading  half-truths, slander and calumny as GOSPEL TRUTH, that the “Far Right Extended Sangh Parivar” uses for Covering up Gross Incompetence and failures of their  B J P government.    


II)            APROPOS- “Clearing Misconceptions” created through disinformation propagated mischievously by communal vested interests around the Sharia law on divorce in Islam ( with a clear intention to use it as a handle to beat the Muslim community with and for polarising communities on religious line for electoral gains).

(1)   NIKAH (marriage) in the Muslim community is not a Sacrament, like it is among Hindus and Christians. Nikah is primarily  an “AHAD” meaning a “Contract or Agreement” between a “Consenting Adult Male” and a “Consenting Adult Female” member of the Muslim Community, to live together with all conjugal rights and duties as endowed up on them by the Sharia.
(2)    As such, the Nikah ceremony is ordained to be and is in most cases,  a simple OATH TAKING CEREMONY over a written agreement by the two consenting adults and gets consummated in less than 15 minutes in the presence of close relatives, with one proposer and  one witness from the Girl’s side and another witness from the Boy’s side who also sign the marriage register that records, apart from all other details, the AMOUNT of DOWER ( call it a surety amount or REVERSE-of-DOWRY!) that the husband will pay, immediately or in a deferred manner to the wife. This Dower amount is fixed mutually by the two sides but it is PRIMARILY the responsibility of Girl’s Parents /relatives to fix a reasonable sum in proportion to the Boy’s earnings and existing wealth.
(3)   Just as the NIKAH is consummated in a peaceful manner and  without much fanfare, the Sharia law provides for  a married couple who feel they are no more compatible and are at loggerhead very often and whose marriage is no more sustainable, a Controlled, Simple
     and Well delineated route of dissolution of their marriage called ‘talaq” (Divorce). Where as in     other communities it ends up being a hard drawn out legal battle that leaves both husband & wife “imprisoned in a traumatic and unwanted relationship” for an unpredictably long period, till they get the divorce from the civil courts after many years!  
(4)   As per Sharia, Talaq from the Man’s side has to be  completed in three stages – with a Gap of three months in between the declaration of  intent to divorce so that in case the couple wants, they  may reconciles their differences during those  three months GAP that they get between the first and the third declaration of talaq by the man so that they can continue as man and wife. All other deviations are Highly Repugnant “Biddat” that Islamic Sharia does not approve or accept.
(5)   Like a Muslim man has a right to dissolve a Failed Marriage, the Muslim woman too has this right, called “ Qula” where she individually or with her relatives approaches the “Qazi-e-Shehar” ( adjudicator), to dissolve her marriage and gets it dissolved in front of witnesses so that the DIVORCED MAN  CAN NOT IMPOSE UP ON HER AGAIN through FORCE!
(6)   In case of a man divorcing his wife, he necessarily has to shell out  the AMOUNT of DOWER in HARD CASH or in terms of Gold promised to the wife and has to return all the Jewelry and gifts that she would have got from her friends and relatives, as well as any JOINT ACCOUNT CASH that she had contributed through her own  earnings, apart from  maintenance amount towards her maintenance commensurate with their normal living standard for three months after divorce called the period of “iddat” after which the woman is free to marry to any other person of her choice.
(7)   The hype over “NIKAH-HALA” is actually TURNING a RULE that is in fact in favour of the woman / wife into something obnoxious! This LAW is meant to DETER men from taking a hasty decision on talaq as a WARNING that in case after Talaq gets firmly consummated and later if he regains his feelings of love and attachment of his divorced wife, he wouldn’t be able to go back to her easily and hence has to think dispassionately before divorcing her. 

So to conclude, the hype, hyperbole and hoopla that has been generated over a DEVIANT PRACTICE of “simultaneous declaration of talaq three times by ignoramuses, wrongly being referred to as ‘triple talaq’, is totally unwarranted as TALAQ among Muslims is always a “Three STAGE and deferred TALAQ”! AND, just due to a FEW Muslim men, deliberately misinterpreting and “MIS-USING” it, one need not “throw out the well established and Sacrosanct Sharia Law on divorce –that will be akin to throwing the baby out with the bath water! AND so, I hope the Supreme Court will really go through the entire GENESIS and PRACTICE of the Sharia Law on divorce instead of getting mislead by the deliberate hype, hyperbole and hoopla generated around the misnomer of “triple talaq”.




AND this is the BASIS for COURTS to decide on issues connected with PERSONAL LAWS:


1950s judgment of the Bombay High Court in State of Bombay versus Narasu Appa Mali continues to hold fort. The Narasu Appa Mali judgment had held that personal law is not ‘law’ under Article 13. The court had observed that reformation of personal laws is best left to the legislature as "chosen representatives of the people" and not the judiciary. It said the phrase ‘customs and usages’ in Article 13 does not include personal laws of various religions.

"MY TAKE" on a SCHOLARLY / INFORMATIVE article by Sanjay Hegde in The Hindu dated April 14, 2017



"MY TAKE" on a SCHOLARLY / INFORMATIVE article by Sanjay Hegde in The Hindu dated April 14, 2017


       Subject: The LEAD article, “Courting faith and reason” by Sanjay Hegde, The Hindu, April 14, 2017

           While most scribes, commentators are busy, once again and rightly so,  EULOGISING the colossal  ICON who was the Single Most Important person behind the CREATION of our Constitution that converted India from being a  SLAVE NATION SLAVE NATION  that had been, only a few years earlier, freed from the YOLK of the 200 years BRITISH rule, into a REMARKABLE Democratic, Socialist and Secular Republic, one may be surprised to see an article from an eminent Supreme Court Lawyer that has a CENTRAL THEME of CRITICISING B.R. Ambedkar on one of several but minor FLAWS in our constitution that have been brought to our notice by similarly eminent legal luminaries both from the Bar as well as from the Judiciary from time to time.     

Mr. Sanjay Hegde, in a way, is RIGHT in criticizing Ambedkar too for allowing the  inclusion of “Cow/Calf/ Cattle protection as a DIRECTIVE PRINCIPLE in the constitution, especially while trying , as if , to TRACE BACK the single most important ROOT CAUSE for the present VIOLENCE and  CHAOS that have been unleashed on a YOUNG, just about 70 years old REPUBLIC of INDIA , in the name of COW PROTECTION by the RIGHT WING FRINGE GROUPS who call themselves as “Gau-Rakshak” on the pretext of their belief in  the Cow as their “MOTHER”, while in reality ,most of them are LUMPEN ELEMENTS indulging in ILLEGAL VIGILANTISM and do so because they now feel that they have a license for “OPEN EXTORTION” with the LAW ENFORCERS turning a blind eye towards their RAMPAGING ESCAPADES and with the present dispensation at the center that is OPENLY acting under the influence of its IDEOLOGICAL MASTER, the RSS and  with  even the RSS chief, giving a TACIT SUPPORT to such unlawful elements and ONLY OFFERING LIP-SERVICE to the VICTIMS of such VIOLENT and BARBARIC VIGILANTISM that has left at least 10 or even more MUSLIM CATTLE TRADERS dead since the first casualty two years ago ,of  Akhlaque of Dadri near Delhi.

However, as he begins his article and quite early in it, after establishing the Phenomenon of “Normalisation of Deviance”( attributed as the ROOT CAUSE for the NEGLIGENCE during design of an O-ring that had resulted in the Challenger space shuttle’s  mid-flight explosion killing all seven astronauts abroad), he unleashes his “TEMP-PLATE” to any how CRITICISE Dr. B.R Ambedkar as the single MOST RESPONSIBLE person for “Cow Protection Clause Fiasco in the Directive Principles of the Constitution" and I  quote the excerpt;
“Today on B.R. Ambedkar’s 126th birth anniversary, violence over cow slaughter threatens to rend apart the Republic and his magnificent Constitution which gave us a secular country with a fundamental right to life and liberty assured to every citizen. How did the body politic slowly deviate so much so that a man’s choice of meat has become his poison? It is time to recount Ambedkar’s normalisation of deviance in the Constituent Assembly on the question of cow protection. That deviance emboldened the Supreme Court decades later to take a position that would have been an abomination to men like Ambedkar.”

While making B.R. Ambedkar the single most responsible person in the Constituent Assembly for this “Cow –Protection Fiasco” in the directive principle”, just because he was HEADING the Assembly, Mr. Hegde FORGETS that he was after all a “ Dalit” by Caste  who was FIGHTING against great ODDS to obtain GREATER FOCUS of deliberations of the Assembly  on the pernicious and INHUMAN PRACTICE of “ UN-TOUCABILITY against his own community”  and to ENSURE that it TRULY GOT ABOLISHED with CRIMINAL CLAUSES  imposed on its PRACTITIONERS to ensure a REAL and LASTING BLOW against that inhuman practice that also had various shades of  the practice of “APARTHEID against the Blacks in South Africa” and hence he had to COMPROMISE when FACED with the stubborn UPPER-CASTE ,or to be blunt, Brahmanical, demand for this clause’s insertion amongst the Directive Principles of the Constitution. Mr. Hegde should have recalled the still earlier COMPROMISE that B. R. Ambedkar was forced to make by the STUBBORN RIGIDITY of Mahatma Gandhi through a Fast unto Death, that had forced Dr. Ambedkar to reluctantly, sign the FAMOUS ( and - quite infamous amongst the DALITS  for all times to come!)POONA – PACT  under VISIBLE duress.

( Ref: 'The Poona Pact' refers to an agreement between Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar and Mahatma Gandhi signed on 24 September 1932 at Yerwada Central Jail in Pune, India. It was signed by Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya and Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar and some other leaders to break the fast unto death undertaken by Gandhi in Yerwada prison to annul the MacDonald Award giving separate electorates to Dalits for electing members of state legislative assemblies in British India.)

So, to conclude, I feel that Mr. Hegde, and quite uncharacteristically so, has definitely erred ,to single out Dr. B.R Ambedkar, for what he now considers as a Fiasco of “Cow Protection Clause entering into the Directive Principles of the Indian Constitution”, since there were many other tall and eminent members in the Constituent assembly,(and mainly some  RIGHT-WING SYMPATHIZERS amongst the CONGRESS), who did ARM-TWIST Dr. Ambedkar for this FIASCO, occupying, as they did, a position of strength, by virtue of belonging to the UPPER CASTES among the majority Hindus and were in fact, and truly, the GUILTY PARTY, for ensuring that this , what has ended up as  a TIME-BOMB- the “Cow Protection Clause within the Directive Principles of the Indian Constitution” .

How religious belief disguised as an economic principle changed the original intent of Ambedkar’s Constitution

The Challenger space shuttle exploded in 1986, killing all seven crew members. It occurred because of a design flaw in the rocket boosters of the spacecraft. The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) had sub-contracted the design of the boosters to an independent company. The company had noticed that the putty used to seal rings on the boosters was forming bubbles that caused a heat jet so hot that it could burn through the rings. The engineers changed the putty. They knew that a putty erosion could still occur, but with very low probability of a catastrophic disaster. Unfortunately for the seven who perished, in a series of small steps NASA deviated from its safety standards and determined that the erosion of the putty was an acceptable risk of flight.
Later, NASA commissioned many inquiries into the cause of the disaster. The most insightful report came from Diane Vaughan, then a teacher of sociology at Boston College, who attributed the disaster to what she called a “normalisation of deviance”. The phrase meant that “people within the organisation become so much accustomed to a deviant behaviour that they don't consider it as deviant, despite the fact that they far exceed their own rules for the elementary safety”.
Today on B.R. Ambedkar’s 126th birth anniversary, violence over cow slaughter threatens to rend apart the Republic and his magnificent Constitution which gave us a secular country with a fundamental right to life and liberty assured to every citizen. How did the body politic slowly deviate so much so that a man’s choice of meat has become his poison? It is time to recount Ambedkar’s normalisation of deviance in the Constituent Assembly on the question of cow protection. That deviance emboldened the Supreme Court decades later to take a position that would have been an abomination to men like Ambedkar.

Political and pragmatic

In 1948 Ambedkar published his book The Untouchables: Who Were They and Why They Became Untouchables? He wrote: “In the first place, we have the fact that the Untouchables or the main communities which compose them eat the dead cow and those who eat the dead cow are tainted with untouchability and no others. The co-relation between untouchability and the use of the dead cow is so great and so close that the thesis that it is the root of untouchability seems to be incontrovertible. In the second place if there is anything that separates the Untouchables from the Hindus, it is beef-eating.” He went on to say: “The reason why Broken Men only became Untouchables was because in addition to being Buddhists they retained their habit of beef-eating which gave additional ground for offence to the Brahmins to carry their new-found love and reverence to the cow to its logical conclusion.”
However, in the Constituent Assembly debates around the same time, Ambedkar was not as vocal against ‘cow reverers’. In February 1948, the first draft of the Constitution was placed before the Assembly. It contained no reference to cow slaughter. The cow protection brigade within the Assembly pushed for an amendment seeking for cow protection as a fundamental right. Ambedkar and his team of draftsmen came up with a constitutional compromise.
A directive principle, seemingly based on economic and scientific grounds, was allowed to be introduced by Pandit Thakurdas Bhargava, a prosperous Brahmin lawyer from Hisar. It read: “The State shall endeavour to organise agriculture and animal husbandry on modern and scientific lines and shall, in particular, take steps for preserving and improving the breeds, and prohibiting the slaughter, of cows and calves and other milch and draught cattle.”
Despite his political stance outside the Constituent Assembly, within it Ambedkar said nothing substantial in the debates on cow slaughter, only that he accepted Bhargava’s amendment. Bhargava, however, emphasised his reluctant acceptance of the compromise when he said, “… for people like me and those that do not agree with the view of Ambedkar and others, this entails, in a way, a sort of sacrifice.”
Another cow proponent, Seth Govind Das, amplified Ambedkar’s lawyerly thinking in the matter. “I had then stated that just as the practice of untouchability was going to be declared an offence so also we should declare the slaughter of cows to be an offence. But it was said that while untouchability directly affected human beings, the slaughter of cows affected the life of animals only and that as fundamental rights were for human beings, this provision could not be included therein.”

The economic backdoor

Thus, though expressed in terms of economic policy, underlying this agreed amendment was the Assembly’s covert yielding, in a limited measure, to Hindu sentiments of cow protection. Protection ostensibly was restricted to cows and calves, milch cattle and those cattle capable of pulling heavy loads.
A bench of five judges of the Supreme Court in the 1959 case of Mohammed Hanif Quareshi v the State of Bihar strengthened the compromise when it did not uphold a complete ban on slaughter. Bhargava, appearing as an amicus in this matter, submitted that the directive principle of cow protection in Article 48 ought to have primacy over any fundamental right of the petitioners. Turning him down, the court said that “a harmonious interpretation has to be placed upon the Constitution and so interpreted it means that the State should certainly implement the directive principles but it must do so in such a way that its laws do not take away or abridge the fundamental rights”. The court finally concluded: “(i) a total ban on the slaughter of cows of all age and calves of cows and calves of she-buffaloes, male and female, is quite reasonable and valid and is in consonance with the directive principles laid down in Art. 48; (ii) a total ban on the slaughter of she-buffaloes or breeding bulls or working bullocks (cattle as well as buffaloes) as long as they are as milch or draught cattle is also reasonable and valid; and (iii) a total ban on the slaughter of she-buffaloes, bulls and bullocks (cattle or buffalo) after they cease to be capable of yielding milk or of breeding or working as draught animals cannot be supported as reasonable in the interest of the general public.”
This formulation held till 2005 when a seven-judge bench was constituted by Chief Justice R.C. Lahoti with five vegetarian judges on it. The resultant judgment had the Supreme Court — by a 6-1 majority — permitting State governments to impose total bans on cow slaughter. The reasoning was that “Times have changed; so have changed the social and economic needs… there is no escape from the conclusion that the protection conferred by impugned enactment on cow progeny is needed in the interest of Nation’s economy.” Justice A.K. Mathur dissented on the principle of stare decisis — that long-settled positions of law should not be easily reversed — adding, “There is no material change in ground realities warranting reversal of earlier decisions.”

Questions for our Republic

The questions that today haunt our Republic are — would the country not have been safer and better off had Ambedkar stuck to his first draft, which had no reference to cow slaughter at all? Did he allow a “normalisation of deviance” from the constitutional norm of secularism when he allowed a religious belief to be disguised as an economic principle? Has the Supreme Court done justice to the original intent of Ambedkar’s magnificent Constitution by reversing itself to keep up with political fashions of the day? A Challenger need not explode for us to realise that deviance into vigilantism can’t always be normalised.

My LETTER to the READER's EDITOR of

Dear Sir,
           
                Subject: The editorial
“Dangerous Vigilantism” – The Hindu, July 21, 2016


                The INHUMAN ATROCITY that was
perpetrated by some GOONY UPPER-CASTE VIGILANTE GROUP calling itself " Gau
Rakshak Dal" against FOUR DALIT YOUTH, where in they were FORCIBLY
STRIPPED to their waist, Tied to a JEEP, BEATEN or rather thrashed mercilessly
for what appeared to be a very LONG TIME and then paraded in that condition in UNA
- a small town in Gir-Somnath District I Gujarat, had actually happened on July
11, 2016 and the video that was recorded SADISTICALLY by one of the TORMENTORS
went VIRAL on social media on 12th July 2016 and “ALL the SOCIALLY CONSIOUS
TWITTERATY and FACE BOOK followers, including this writer, started the REQUIRED
HUE and CRY an DEMAND for IMMEDIATE POLICE ACTION, that was not being
FORTHCOMING from the Gujarat Police, as the perpetrators belonged mainly to
UPPER CASTE youths, as a result of which the Gujarat Police arrested a few
PERPETRATORS of this SAVAGERY and also started looking for those GOONS who were
absconding after this HUE & CRY got strident on SOCIAL MEDIA ( that even
the TV News Channels also took this issue up a little later ( to say figuratively,
Joining the BAND WAGON when the SOUND of the BAND became VERY LOUD and STRIDENT
Lol- short form of LAUGH out LOUD used in social media…)  - and OBVIOUSLY more for the SAKE of TRP’s
for their Channels).

            However, I am writing to YOU to
Complain about the VISIBLE and discernible SHIFTING of the POLITICAL
ORIENTATION of The Hindu from being sympathetic to the “Left of center
SOCIALISTIC considerations of : Liberty, Equality, Fraternity, along with an
overlaying importance for UNIVERSAL SECULAR ETHOS”, of late, towards the SO
CALLED CENTRIST POLITICAL DISCOURSE” due to which, your MUCH LOVED NEWSPAPER
has lost its REAL DNA and is slowly and steadily appearing to be a NATIONAL
DAILY  whose SUDDEN GENETIC TRANSFORMATION
under the new editor is PUTTING it in the bracket of  other many of the  so called CENTRIST and  other RIGHT WING NATIONAL DAILIES& SANGH
PARIVAR’S ’ various mouth pieces! I say so, because, of LATE The Hindu,
editorialises on such BURNING ISSUES that concern a RUPTURE and LOSS of  Liberty, Equality, Fraternity and SECULAR
ETHOS in our society through EVENTS such as the UNO outrage, ONLY when it
BECOMES a  RAGING ISSUE in the MEDIA
& doesn’t even give sufficient & prominent COVERAGE {another recent
deliberately light & insignificant coverage done was on the whole day –
Tuesday, 11.00 AM till 6.30 PM, RAJYASABH Discussion on the BURNING Kashmir
Issue where TALL OPPOSITION LEADERS had TAKEN to TASK the MODI Government at
the center as well as the PDP-BJP alliance Government in J&K and literally
TAKEN it OVER the (BURNING HOT) Coals, The HINDU, dated July 19, 2016, made the
entire DISCOURSE covered in a small,
single column on PAGE 12 at the very corner, funnily under NEWS, with
the ALL the VARIOUS, very important, SENSITIVE, EMPHATIC and COMPASSIONATE
SPEECHES by several TALL OPPOSITION LEADERS were REDUCED to a SUMMARY of “LESS
than 1000 Characters” leading  one to
wonder whether the  SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT
who wrote this “PIECE” was given a CHARACTER-LIMIT of 1000 Characters like your
Web-Site keeps a limit of 1000 Characters for COMMENTS made on the Web-Site?}

It is IRONICAL that
SUPPOSEDLY the SOCIALLY MOST CONSCIOUS NATIONAL DAILY waited for FULL NINE-days
after the SAVAGERY inflicted on the four hapless Dalit Youth whose only crime
PURPORTEDLY was to have SKINNED a Carcass of a DEAD COW, to EDITORIALISE on
such a BARBARIC EVENT connected with the
BURNING ISSUE of wide spread DALIT SUBJUGATION and PERSECUTION, that
too, only after the ISSUE got SNOWBALLED into VIOLENT DALIT PROTEST in various
parts of GUJARAT!

don’t want to burden you with):

MY COMMENTS on this FORTH RIGHT and HARD HITTING ARTICLE:

THE ARTICLE is a FORTH RIGHT and HARD HITTING article ,in which the WRITER  speaks from the depths of her ANGUISHED and LAMENTING HEART, over the BRUTALITY and SAVAGERY with which a LIVING STRETCH of the RIVER JAMUNA has been MURDERED with hardly any chance of restoration to life, not in another 10 years at the least; She speaks of the Brutality and Savagery of supposedly a "GOD MAN" who is NORMALLY busy with a "MASQUERADE of a PREACHER PREACHING " HOW to LIVE and LIVE in PEACE" to Humans and while doing so, has BUILT such a POWERFUL EMPIRE of HIS that EVEN the govt of the day is FORCED to OBLIGE not only to ALLOW this DESTRUCTION of RARE FLORA & FAUNA's HABITATS but also, it has been FORCED to OBLIGE by LENDING and PUTTING at the DISPOSAL of  this SANGHI SYMPATHISER/SUPPORTER, our GREAT and HIGHLY RESPECTED INDIAN ARMY, just like any other SMALL TIME PRIVATE CIVIL CONTRACTOR, to BUILD on this "DOGMAN'S" behest, PONTOON BRIDGES, that take MONTHS to BUILD, just for the sake of  HIS  THREE DAY JAMBOREE, intended apparently, ONLY to CREATE an INDIAN RECORD in the GUINES BOOK OF RECORDS!

Kapil Mishra, law minister in the Delhi government and chairperson of Delhi Jal Board, has lent his support to the controversial Art of Living event to be held on the Yamuna floodplains. He says he wants “more events to be held on the banks of the river”. This from a party that has been celebrating its commitment to green issues by flagging off the odd-even formula in the city. And this, for an event which every scientist has stated, on record, in proceedings before the National Green Tribunal (NGT), will damage the floodplains of the Yamuna forever.

Even as I write this, the countdown to the World Spiritual Festival has begun. The three-day cultural festival will see 35,000 musicians perform simultaneously on a seven-acre stage. Over 3.5 million people are expected at the event for which pontoon bridges were constructed across the river, on which no construction is permitted.

The floodplains are home to over 200 species of birds and, despite the pollution in the river, are still vibrant with biodiversity. They also help recharge groundwater for the city. Keeping the Yamuna free of encumbrances is vital for the local birdlife, yes, but even more critical for a water-scarce city such as Delhi.

Not one party has opposed this systematic destruction of the lifeline of Delhi. That’s why as a citizen of Delhi, I feel let down that every single arm of the government willingly gave permission for such a huge jamboree to be allowed on the banks of the Yamuna.

In April 2007, a similar event was planned on the same stretch: a shopping extravaganza on the lines of the Dubai Shopping Festival. The organizers boasted of a “spectacular display of fireworks and a carnival every night along with 25 restaurants and a food court and a footfall of over 30,000 visitors everyday”. The news channel I was part of then went behind the scenes and broadcast a story on how, overnight, reed beds had been flattened and the floodplain destroyed. Based on that, a petition was filed in court and a committee that had been set up by the high court to look at encroachments on the Yamuna was asked to step in.

Sadly, this time around, the clout of the organizers is such that even the army was asked to pitch in to help build pontoon bridges, and the prime minister is expected to attend the event. The organizers of the event have pleaded in court that it is too late now to shift the venue elsewhere, yet it seems odd that the city of Delhi, with all its infrastructure, had no other place to hold this mega event? What happened to the city’s stadia, or the Ramlila grounds or Pragati Maidan?

The head of the Art of Living Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has dismissed all criticism as being “biased” and assured people that he will “beautify” the region. With due respect to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, his views represent a limited notion of ecological restoration. Restoration of a habitat cannot happen overnight simply by the release of some enzymes or by removing debris. Further, beautifying an area doesn’t imply restoring it for biodiversity or being able to bring back the small waterbodies that were supporting avifauna or other micro-organisms. Already, the number of migratory birds that used to visit the floodplains of the Yamuna has gone down significantly because of construction on the Noida side. This event, as Professor A.K. Gosain (the head of the committee appointed by the National Green Tribunal) points out, has “left a permanent footprint on the floodplain”.

The Yamuna is not the Ganga. Even for the Kumbh Mela, one must not forget, water is diverted from different barrages before the mega event takes place to ensure there is a flowing river. By the time the Yamuna enters the city, it is a stressed-out, overworked river carrying the excreta and industrial waste of the city. That’s why the Art of Living’s argument in court—that if the Ganga can withstand the pressures of millions of people from the Kumbh, so can the Yamuna—is hollow.

The triumvirate of the Delhi Development Authority, the Delhi government and the central government has collectively ensured the systematic destruction of the floodplains. The citizens of Delhi must embrace the Yamuna issue as their own, just as they did the odd-even formula. They must ask their government why it allowed an event on the banks of a river which is already in peril. Mega events on the floodplains of the river are an absolute no; unfortunately, this event will only open the floodgates for many such requests. In the meantime, an already dead river weeps for its survival.

JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar speaking on campus on Thursday night.









This
SPEECH by  Kanhaiya Kumar, is MORE
AWESOME than his previous ones and a PROOF that DESTINY SHAPES the LIFE of
COLOSSAL LEADERS- to-BE through making them go through a TRIAL BY FIRE that
Kanhaiya Kumar has gone through the last three weeks or so SUCCESSFULLY and has
COME OUT of this TRIAL BY FIRE not just UNSCATHED but going by this AWESOME
SPEECH of his, that too after having been INCARCERATED for nearly two weeks and
released from the PRISON only TODAY, he seems to have GROWN with more POLITICAL
ACUMEN and with MORE SPIRITUAL STRENGTH to be able to come out with such a
FIERY, MIND BOGGLING and AWE INSPIRING SPEECH!








ALL
in all , in conclusion, one can conclude that the FASCISTS have, through their
DUMB, MORONIC ACT of getting the J N U student's LEADER KANHAIYA KUMAR FALSELY
IMPLICATED in a CASE of "SEDITION through their regular ploy of GOEBBELS
BRANDED SLANDER and CALUMNY using DOCTORED VIDEOS, converted Kanhaiya Kumar in
to POTENTIALLY a POLITICAL GIANT / COLOSSUS!
