Fördöm Indiens krig mot folket! (video och bilder från dagens minidemo)

Först samlades vi på Hötorget klockan 16. Sedan gick vi med banderollen och ropade längs Drottninggatan. Vi stannade utanför ambassaden och stod där och ropade och delade flygblad. Någon ringde polisen och sa att det stod 70 personer och ropade utanför ambassaden. Polisen kom och sa att de inte tänkte göra något om vi inte ropade “för mycket”. Då kunde det nämligen räknas som “ordningsstörning”.

Här är flygbladet.

Varför är sekularismen viktig?

The Secular Stake: A Burden, Or A Democratic Imperative?
By Sanjay Kumar

http://www.countercurrents.org/skumar211214.htm

Should India remain, or rather become secular, only for minorities’ sake? Then, why should the majority be interested in secularism? Only because of their ‘good neighbourly’ sense, or to avoid civil strife of
communal clashes? The tragedy and the farce of Indian secularism is precisely this, that ever since its initial conception and practice during the freedom movement, it has remained hostage to a
majority-minority framework, and it has implicitly answered all the above questions in the affirmative. Nothing can be farther away from the real significance of secularism for a modern democracy. There have been
many non-democratic secular regimes. Secularism though is a democratic imperative. What everybody, including minority citizens, lose in the absence of secularism are distinct democratic freedoms which only
secularism can assure …

Den indiska staten utvidgar kriget till Western Ghats

wg

Operation Green Hunt (a.k.a. “War on People”) blir utvidgad  till Western Ghats som är befolkat av många olika adivasifolk och där finns otroligt många arter av djur och växter. Därför har Western Ghats blivit ett världskulturarv. Men det skiter väl Modi och hans gangstersponsorer i. Adivasis skall bort och om de gör motstånd då blir de terrorister som helt enkelt kan likvideras.

As Operation Green Hunt Extends To Engulf  The Western Ghats, What Do We Stand To Lose?
By JNU Forum Against War on People

As the eyes of the corporates and the Indian state have fixed themselves on this region, preparations have also began to dispossess those adivasis who seem to come in the way way of ‘development’. While such measures would inevitably and justifiably be resisted by those adivasi people fighting in defense of their life, livelihood & dignity, the state is extending its war on people into these regions…

‘Seven hundred of us couldn’t stop hundred Maoists, appaled’

10BGCRPF_1513886f

Bilden föreställer soldater ur  Central Reserve Police Force som beskrivs i artikeln och som vanligen används i inbördeskriget.

Denna nyhet är intressant därför att den ger en delvis annan bild av läget än den som vanligen förekommer. Naxalitområdena är under en ekonomisk och militär blockad och de har mycket stora svårigheter och många ledare har dödats. Mycket stora svårigheter verkar dock också den andra sidan i konflikten ha. Det är tydligen inte lätt att bekämpa folk i deras hemområde.

‘Seven hundred of us couldn’t stop hundred Maoists, appaled’
Jugal R Purohit  Bastar, December 7, 2014 | UPDATED 09:09 IST
A file photo of CRPF jawans.With a hint of anger in his blood-shot eyes, he revealed, “We were close to seven hundred. They were barely over a hundred. Yet we could neither save our colleagues or their weapons nor could we eliminate the rebels”. Rajat and three of his colleagues (names changed on request) were a part ‘Operation SS 14 (South Sukma)’ from the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) who faced off with the Maoists on Monday and lost fourteen of their men including two officers. They are presently awaiting their return to their original location.
While Rajat Kumar is a young ‘sipahi’, joined hardly two years ago, his colleagues are not. “Nothing is going to change. I am looking at completing twenty years of service and exiting with pension,” said Mahesh Raj, a constable. For the force that the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) wants to become the arrow head of India’s anti-Maoist effort, it is a difficult time. Those outside see it as fighting a difficult battle. Those inside have little hope of things improving.
By November 10, officers in various battalions were informed of a major, ‘four phase’ operation to be conducted later in the month. By November 15, personnel were sought from an array of battalions which included 74th, 150th, 201st & 206th CoBRA, team directly under Deputy Inspector General (DIG) CoBRA, team directly under Inspector General (IG) CRPF and 223th battalion. Before November 15, over 600 personnel had gathered at camps like Pollampalli, Kankerlanka and Puswada among others in Sukma.
“Our operations would take two nights and three days. We had nil intelligence. We would search, wander from one location to the other, expose ourselves to the Maoists and return,” said Rajat. It was reliably learnt that the operation has come under question from several quarters within the CRPF. When asked, the acting Director General RC Tayal had earlier commented, “The traditional area domination operations need to now change. We must hit the Maoists and operations need to be pinpoint, specific and swift.” As these operations progressed, on November 21, in its second phase, seven personnel were injured by the Maoists. Later, the third and fourth phases were merged into one and undertaken from November 29 to December 1.
On November 30, five of those who participated in the operations were detected with malaria and required immediate evacuation. However a Border Security Force (BSF) helicopter flew in on that day but did not land, citing unfit conditions. “We covered a hillock and slept there for the night. Next morning, you can say our operation had turned into one where we were only scurrying to detect a suitable landing spot for the helicopter,” said Pankaj Kumar, another constable.
As luck would have it, coordination with the helicopter fleet for such a massive operation was another debacle.
The IAF team at Jagdalpur readied itself to fly but all day the CRPF could not confirm just where to land till it was in the sunset range! “Helipad locations kept changing throughout. At 1610 hours, the fourth location came. And mind you, all along CRPF never uttered a word that there was an ambush. We got curious. Finally, at 1640hrs they asked us to go to evacuate their injured and we couldn’t because it was too late.The state government, despite repeated reminders has failed to install equipment which can allow us to land at night. Had they done that even at their Chintagufa camp, where the troops returned that night, we would have evacuated the injured,” said a MoD official.
Little of this means anything to these men on ground. “Forget malaria cases, even if the IAF/BSF had flown the next day when we asked them to on the day of the ambush, two of out men would have been alive today,” said Pankaj Kumar.
On ground, before all hell broke loose, all the team commanders were called to meet the IG at the ground zero. It was close to 9:30am. As the encounter began with firing from a ridge on to CRPF position near Kasalpad village, instead of fighting the hundred odd Maoists, different units of the CRPF were moving in different directions. “We still don’t know why many things happened the way they did. We did not act as one,” conceded an officer who was a key element of the entire operation.
Frustration written over his face, Rajat said, “We were looking for the Maoists all these days. We were tired but we wanted to finish them off because they had showed up finally. But when firing began we noticed that not all were fighting.” His colleague, Mahesh, quiet till now said, “In J&K, when militants show up, the entire area is cordoned and militants are not allowed to walk away like it happened here.”
The MHA has announced a slew of committees to investigate the lapses and review the CRPF’s functioning apart from the statutory Court of Inquiry (CoI).
An inspector who was watching the conversation flow said, “I have seen the CRPF for over 25 years. Never before has the force taken so many hits. We are being called upon to do the kind of work that militaries do yet we neither have that kind of training nor powers.”

Naxaliterna slår ett politiskt slag mot hindu-fascismen

REBUILD BABRI MASJID AT THE SAME SITE! ISOLATE AND DEFEAT HINDU FASCIST FORCES!!

OBSERVE ‘BLACK DAY’ ON DECEMBER 6 OPPOSING HINDU COMMUNALISM!

PUNISH SEVERELY SAFFRON TERRORISTS RESPONSIBLE FOR MALEGAON, MECCA MASJID, AJMER SHERIEF AND SAMJHOUTA EXPRESS BOMB BLASTS!

Exactly 18 years ago, on 6th December 1992, Hindu religious fundamentalist goondas in connivance with the then Congress government at the centre, demolished Babri Masjid at Ayodhya. Firstly, these Hindu fundamentalists made 500 year-old Babri Masjid a controversial site by claiming it as the birth place of Lord Rama, and on that pretext many a time instigated communal disturbances in the country killing thousands of Muslims.

Demolition of Babri Masjid was the biggest attack by Hindu fascists in the history of our country. The likes of LK Advani, Ashok Singhal, Murali Manohar Joshi, Praveen Togadiya, Uma Bharati, Sadhvi Ritambara, who were directly involved in it were not punished by any court even till today. On 30th September, giving its verdict on the ownership rights of the controversial site, pending for 61 years, the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court with its Brahminical Hindu religious ideology did injustice to Muslims.

Without any historical evidence and archeological proof it stated the controversial place to be the birth place of Lord Rama. First occupying Masjid, then demolishing, now by giving verdict to build temple, that too to handover the very forces involved in demolition, clarifies Indian state’s Hindu fascist mindset.

By this verdict, once again it has been proved that the Houses of justice in this country favour only exploitative classes and Brahminical Hindu religious fanatics, but not peasants, workers, dalits [the lowest group in India’s oppressive caste system-ed], women and religious minorities. By court verdicts a solution to this cannot be found, only by smashing the present system and by establishing New Democratic State, a solution to this can be found.

In the recent past, many evidences surfaced proving the involvement of saffron [Hindu fundamentalist-ed] terrorist groups of the Sagh Parivar in bomb blasts at Malegaon, Ajmer Sherief, Hyderabad’s Mecca Masjid, Samjhouta express. The leaders of VHP, RSS, Bajarang Dal and other organizations on the proxy name of ‘Abhinav Bharat’ conspired bomb blasts and killed many innocent people.

It has become a norm for the police and intelligence agencies to blame Muslims as culprits, wherever and whenever bomb blasts take place, even if at Masjids. Arresting hundreds of youth without any reason and severely torturing, killing in fake encounters, implicate false cases, accusing of having links with ISI [Pakistani army’s intelligence branch-ed] and thus playing with lives is part of the Hindu communal and fascist policies of the governments.

By projecting every Muslim as a terrorist through media, governments are trying to suppress them by all means. Those who demand to hang Ajmal Kasab who is involved in Mumbai attacks, at the same time keeping mum or not raising their voice loudly against Hindu fascist killers of Sangh gang is a dangerous sign.

Governments are not arresting these saffron terrorists, even if they arrest a few on some occasions, are setting them free declaring innocent by not conducting thorough probe. On the other hand, those intellectuals, journalists, media organizations, newspapers and activists who dare to raise their voice against these Hindu fundamentalist forces are being attacked by Sangh gang at several places. On the whole, the communal fascistic trends of the Indian state are taking a severe form day by day.

Secular forces of all religions, democrats and progressive thinkers should come forward and fight unitedly against Hindu communal fascism. All of us must condemn the attacks of Hindu fascist forces on Muslims, Christians and all other religious minorities. At the same time all other kinds of religious fundamentalism should be opposed.

The place of Babri Masjid belonged to Muslims; it should be given to Muslims and has been demanding that Babri Masjid should be rebuilt at the same site and those fascist leaders who had demolished it must be punished severely. Observe ‘BLACK DAY’ on December 6, by conducting meetings and processions and wearing black badges in protest of Hindu communal ism.

Abhay spokesman,
C.P.I.(Maoist)

Man får inte kyssas på gatorna i Indien

kiss-of-love-TOI

Här är en artikel som handlar om det märkliga fenomenet med att kyssar är olagliga på gatorna i Indien. “Kiss of Love”-rörelsen har bildats som en reaktion på detta. (Den här texten skall inte förstås som att vi uppmanar till sådant beteende i Sverige).
