Grym barnaga standard i Indien

Aga är inte längre tillåten varken i Sverige eller Tyskland. Men titta här – i Indien är det fortfarande använt i tusen former. Liksom i Afrika – men där har de lärt sig den uppfostringsmetoden av de vita (det är fakta – det var helt okänd i Afrika innan dess). Men jag vet inte om det var likadant i Indien – tror inte det.
Kanske någon kan kolla. Nu ser det i alla fall ut så här /Einar

Advice For School Teachers: Dare To Be Strict
By Ms.Swaleha Sindhi

http://www.countercurrents.org/sindhi210215.htm

The corporal punishment is a regular affair in thousands of schools in India. Children not only carry overload of text books and note books on their tender backs, but bear the brunt of canes for silly reasons like socks. Shoes, shoe laces, ribbon color, plating hair, oiling hair, putting nail paint, ‘kneel down’ under hot sun, to complete the assigned writing work in kneel down position (kneeling down on the earth is painful). The time has come to re-examine the saying ‘spare the rod and spoil the child’. Children are at receiving end both at their own homes and schools from parents, teachers and non-teaching school authorities. Almost all schools inflict corporal punishments on students for various reasons. However, law basically does not agree with any excessive punishment to beings, which would be definitely a violation of personal right

Indiska myndigheter använder vår facebookprofil (se deras falska chat)

Untitled-1

Igår så skickade en indisk facebookvän bilder på mördade och våldtagna naxalitkvinnor via chatten på facebook. När jag scrollade upp såg jag att “jag” hade chattat med honom tidigare. Det är bara det att “jag” inte är “jag”. Falskchattaren erbjuder i chatten ovan att skicka en rapport av CPI(maoist) från ett naxalitstödmöte i Milano i Italien. Det finns en längre text som CPI(maoist) har skrivit till mötet men någon rapport från mötet verkar inte har publicerats av dem på nätet och det kommer de nog inte heller att göra. De var säkert inte ens där.

Varför gör de på detta viset?
I chatten frågar de efter vår facebookväns mailadress. Svaret på gåtan finns nog där. En svensk vän skickade oss nämligen den 11 december ett svar på ett mail som vi aldrig har skickat. I detta mail fanns filer bifogade. Vi har tidigare fått oss tillskickat mail med “maoist-dokument” i word-format bifogat som har innehållit några konstiga exe-filer som har velat installera sig på datorn. Tanken är förmodligen att försöka förmå folk att självmant installera spionprogram som kan skicka loggar med knapptryckningar så att de kan få in så mycket och så bra information som möjligt.

Klantskallar tränade av Mossad
Det är verkligen inga datasnillen som har sysslat med att spionera. Snarare verkar det som de har en massa praktikanter som försöker samla information. Hade de varit skickliga så skulle vi naturligtvis inte märkt att de spionerade. Det pucko som inte har raderat chatloggen på facebook borde de sparka och metoden att skicka falska mail med wordfiler som egentligen är exe-filer verkar egendomligt ålderdomlig och så konstig att t.o.m. min gamla mormor skulle reagera framför datorn.  Det är kanske israeliska Mossad som har tränat dem. Borde de byta leverantör av utbildningstjänster? Mossad verkar inte riktigt “up to date”. Men är det kanske meningen att den indiska staten skall vara usel på cyberkrigföring? Det ligger liksom inbyggt i det imperialistiska projektet att halvkolonierna inte skall få vara riktigt duktiga och självständiga (allt du har hört om “IT-undret” i Indien stämmer inte).

Sätt fart och använd facebook och mailen ännu mer
Avslutningsvis. Det ständiga talet om “övervakningssamhället” och storebror gör att en del folk inte vill använda tekniken. Det är synd. Vi tänker tvärtom. Använd dessa kanaler ännu mer och reta upp storebror. Bombardera allmänheten med politiska och kritiska artiklar.  Facebook är riktigt bra för att sprida politiska budskap och slutar vi så blir det bara en flod av liberala och rasistiska länkar kvar. Så sätt fart och posta länkar till denna artikel och om ni vill chatta med oss eller undrar över något mail så be om vårt nummer så att ni kan kolla att det verkligen är vi.

Adivasi Campaign for Human Rights

Dear all, on behalf of the “Adivasi Campaign for Human Rights”, I have the pleasure to share its first brief report, “Adivasi Campaign demands rejection of the Land Acquisition Ordinance, 2014″ which is available at http://www.adivasirights.org/full_news.php?news_id=2

The ‘Adivasi Campaign for Human Rights’ (Adivasi Campaign) has been recently established to lead the national campaign of the Adivasis/Indigenous Peoples of India, majority of whom, are notified as Scheduled Tribes under the Constitution of India.

In public domain in India, Adivasis/Indigenous Peoples are largely perceived either as victims or beneficiaries, but they are seldom considered as decision makers by government, non-governmental organizations, donors, international organisations etc. There is a serious lack of representation/participation of the Adivasis/indigenous peoples in the discussion, debate, policy formation, law making, budgeting, etc
relating to them.

Therefore, it was decided to establish the ‘Adivasi Campaign for Human Rights’ with the aim to seek and ensure representation/participation of the Adivasis/Indigenous Peoples, among others, in discussion, debate,
policy formation, law making and implementation of programmes relating to Adivasis/Indigenous Peoples by NGOs, donors, governments, UN bodies, etc.

The Adivasi Campaign is committed to promote, protect and ensure the rights of the Adivasis /Indigenous Peoples guaranteed under the Constitution of India and United Nations human rights instruments
including the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

Please feel free to contact us or keep us informed about your work on Adivasi rights.

We shall also be sending our regular briefing to you. Should you wish not
to receive the same, please drop a line.

With kind regards,

Yours sincerely

Defence Committee for the Release of Com. Hem & All other Political Prisoners (JNU)

We, the undersigned organizations and individuals, have come together to form a platform, “Defence Committee for the Release of Comrade Hem and All Other Political Prisoners”. The need for such a committee has been felt for a long time, and is more necessary than ever in today’s context when all forms of dissent and protests against the state are being increasingly criminalized.

For the JNU student community, this criminalization of dissent has come very close home. Comrade Hem, a former student of this campus has been languishing in Nagpur Central Jail for the past one and a half years now. Contrary to the claims of the police, it has become clear how he had been virtually abducted (three days prior to his official arrest), tortured brutally in custody and has been in solitary confinement for the more than 6 months after he participated in protests inside the jail – details which he has elaborately spoken about in his recent open letter from within the confines of the Nagpur Central Jail. All this while, he has been denied the minimum constitutionally guaranteed rights to which every political prisoner is entitled. The police took over 6 months to even produce a charge sheet against him – thanks to the provisions of the draconian UAPA – and the first time his bail petition was heard was only in September 2014, i.e., almost 13 months after his arrest, where it was rejected by the Aheri Session Court.

As we intensify our campaign for the release of one of our fellow comrades, who fought shoulder to shoulder with us in various struggles, we also realize that his case is not an isolated one. As the ruling classes of the country, especially under the present BJP led NDA government, increasingly align with big capital and feudal forces and intensify oppression manifold on the toiling masses, it is also simultaneously arming itself with a plethora of draconian laws to suppress the resistance of the people. The jails of this country today, from Maharashtra, Jharkand, Chattisgarh, West Bengal, Odisha, are full of dalits, adivasis, muslims and several people’s activists, intellectuals, civil liberties activists, students and teachers who have stood in solidarity with people’s movements and spoken out against state oppression. What has happened with Hem, has in the recent past also happened with prominent civil liberties and political activists like Binayak Sen, Sudhir Dhawale, Abhay Sahoo, Manorma Devi, Jitan Marandi, Arun Ferreira, Vernon Gonzalvez, members of Kabir Kala Manch and so on. The workers of Maruti languishing behind bars face similar fate. In the Dantewada and Bastar districts of Chattisgarh alone, more than 1300 activists of the CPI have been arrested after being branded as Maoists. We were all witness to how a DU professor Dr. G.N. Saibaba was abducted in broad day light by plain clothes policemen of the Maharasthra police and then framed on similar cooked up charges. The same story has repeated itself with a professor in Andhra University in Vizag and now against two well known activists of Kerala – Jaison Cooper and Thushar Sarathy.

We believe that all those who have been jailed, under such draconian laws, for their political ideology or for having participated in people’s movements should, at least, be granted the designation of political prisoners and be given the constitutionally guaranteed rights – including the right to speedy trial and the right to bail. On the contrary, in reality we see the state prolonging incarceration deliberately by not hearing cases, extending incarceration of political activists by not producing witnesses or evidence, etc. They are being kept for months in solitary confinement, so that they cannot associate with others. In the recent past, the state has also resorted to a method of video-conferencing for trials, by which political prisoners are not even produced in courts for hearing. In February this year, thousands of prisoners across jails in Maharasthra, Jharkhand and Odhisa, went on a 9 day long hunger strike (largely unreported by the media) protesting against these practices. We have seen repeatedly how most of those charged under these draconian laws are given bail or acquitted only after years and years of incarceration. All these made clear that these arrests and detentions are extremely political in nature – clearly aimed at keeping political activists away from organizing against the anti-people policies of the state.

Democratic and civil rights organizations and committees have been speaking for the rights of political prisoners. Some of them even providing legal aid to these prisoners. But at a time when there is also an attack on students’ movement, unions and students’ activism in people’s movements outside the campus, in this country and across the world; there is a need for a committee of students to fight these attacks. This is especially imperative since one of our fellow students, Hem continues to face the brunt of the state machineries, be it the police, courts or jail authorities. This committee is a step towards building broad solidarities against state repression against political activism.

The scope of this committee will be taking forward a political campaign inside & outside campus, about the growing clampdown on dissenting voices. In this context, we felt that there should be a committee from the student community in defense of all political prisonersthose arrested for being a part of mass movements that challenge the dominant power structures; individual activists who have been branded and targeted by state machinery under the black laws and also various legal provisions in general. This committee will largely launch political campaign for their rights as political prisoner – right to bail, time bound hearing, in person trials, right to reading material, not to be tortured in custody and other democratic and civil rights. The committee will be composed of left and progressive, political, cultural organizations and individuals. The future course of action will be charted out through transparent and democratic mechanisms.

Love Godse, Hate Tipu Sultan: Why The ‘Tiger of Mysore’ Still Troubles The Saffrons

By Subhash Gatade 05 January, 2015.  Countercurrents.org

The saffrons have done it again. They have once again showed utter contempt towards the legacy of legendary Tipu Sultan, (20 November 1750 – 4 May 1799) one of those rare kings who was martyred on the battlefield, while fighting the Britishers at the historic battle at Srirangpatnam and whose martyrdom fighting the colonials preceded the historic revolt of the 1857 by around 50 years. Not very many people even know that he had even sacrificed his children while fighting them.
